Zhao Li Rong won Tokyo best actress by her real performance
14 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

IT's a typical Chinese 90's family story. Zhao Li Rong gave her warm and real-life style performance in this movie, BTW which is the top comedian in china through all 90s' until 2000(that's the year of her death).

it's a story of family's dilemma between different family member especially between 2 generations which erupted on "chu xi"(the day before the first day in Chinese lunar year).

though it's called "GUO NIAN" (spring festival), don't watch on that day. it does not feel very happy or new year. but overall this film worth watching.
