The literal translation of the title of this movie is: Look at this family.
This movie is a masterpiece of introspection on the effect, or more precisely, the trauma the Cultural Revolution left on the interpersonal relationships, and this is not for somebody famous, but just an ordinary family of common citizen.
The story is told via the parent-children relationship/generation gap, and the already strained relationship between the parents and the children are further worsened by their personal experience. Nobody is to blame, but the political system and the mad era.
The movie carefully criticized the regime indirectly by criticizing the Cultural Revolution instead of government, and this is something difficult to discover for those who did not live through that mad era.
