The literal translation of the title of this movie is: Forty, Not Tricked.
Audience needs to know a little bit of the traditional Chinese culture to understand the title of this movie: in the Chinese culture, the age thirty is called the age of independence, because a man should be married no later than this age, and by this age, he should also be responsible of taking care the family. The age forty is called the age by which a man could not be easily tricked by outside seductions, because by the age of forty, the man should be mature enough to resist all the temptations.
This movie is a much milder version of Huozhe (To Live) which was made two years later, and it serves as the predecessor of the latter.
