I suppose this melodramatic piece of clownish claptrap is the Chinese' idea of dark and deviant. As if a year and a half there wasn't enough to let me know how lame their films and TV shows are.
It gets pretty nasty for a few minutes toward the end. The "row, row, row your boat" part nearly had me fapping. But even then the general air of "aw shucks" stupidity will make it difficult for most people to even get that far. The typically Chinglish subtitles only lessen the impact.
Unless you are not a fan of these kind of films, I wouldn't recommend this. Communists simply do not have enough worldliness or emotional depth to create anything truly profound, since they are indoctrinated to be lamers from birth.
The ending is nearly twenty unrelenting minutes of a moronically cruel downward spiral that is supposed to have you in tears, but in reality just makes you wanna roll your eyes till your brain starts to hurt. It just goes on and on and on. It's as if some idiot thought (and I'm sure he did), "Let's make a hundred item list of every single possible thing that would make people sad, then show them all scene by scene toward the end!!"
