This is a rather touching film from Hong Kong, starring Ma Wu as grandfather Ku Ka-te, who gets a visit from his 12-year-old American-born grandson (Kun-Hsuan Huang). The culture clashes are highlighted in this film, from the grandfather dealing with his grandson's cocky and rebellious attitude to the grandson complaining about waiting in long lines to use the public restroom in Shanghai.
It's touching to see how the grandson tries to learn to appreciate and understand his grandfather and life in general in China, and how their relationship grows stronger throughout the film. The acting was quite decent and the plot was well-paced.
