Masterpiece of personal liberalization of another kind.
17 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

The literal translation of the title of this movie is: the family that lacks manners.

This movie is a masterpiece of personal liberalization of a different kind. In China, most topics regards personal liberalization is associated with breaking the rigid governmental rules. However, equally rigid was the dross of the traditional Confucian teaching such as the burden of saving face, carrying on family names, and keeping the family scandals/crimes secret in order to keep the good family reputation.

This movie does an excellent re-evaluation and criticism on the dross of the traditional Confucian teachings that limits personal liberty just as much as the outdated governmental rules have done.
