Masterpiece on cultural introspection, as well as criticism
15 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie is an masterpiece of criticism on the not-so-favorite part of the Chinese culture, namely, the rigid traditional Confucian teaching of extravagant funeral services and earth burial.

According to the rigid traditional Confucian teaching, if the children did not spend big bucks to have very extravagant funeral for their dead parents, then the children do not appear to have any filial piety, and thus are not good children. Such practice put extremely heavy financial burden on the family and for many instance, the grandchildren's education was sacrificed because the tuition money for the grandchildren are used for the grand parents' funeral.

This movie does an excellent job in criticize this not-so-favorite parts of the traditional culture and should be re-released over and over again in China.
