Pan Zhichang: It's hard to find someone to talk to my treat.
Ye Rutang: You're too kind.
Pan Zhichang: But look, I'm a man. It's a man's duty to take care of women. Li Sao is a great poem, precisely because it's centred on women. In my opinion, only lesser poer look down women. That includes Li Bai, he isn't a great poet. But Du Fu is. And so is Qu Yuan. Sorry... I have a trachoma.

What a wonderful movie!
9 March 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

When you see the beginning of the movie, you cannot think of the ending. The first half of the movie was very funny. The latter half of the movie was more into the realization and went sadder after. "The Post-Modern Life of My Aunt" is directed by Ann Hui. She is a wonderful director I would say. The story plot was a little bit ordinary, yet she did it so well to let audience or me to see something else more than just a plot. The script and story was very well written interweaving drama. the film's warm humanism transcends cultural borders. Siqin Gaowa, Chow Yun-fat played very well and so did Vicki Zhao Wei as the bitter, gutter-mouth, ghetto talking daughter of said aunt, who surprised me most.
