A realistic style through the times
29 May 2015 | by (Nanjing, China) – See all my reviews

The film set a new record of the actor's age. There are at least 3 Aged actress: Zhong Lv is 75 years old, Ran-ran Li is 85 years old, Su Ying Huang is 96 years old. The three national actress quietly interpretation of what is called dedication.

The writers also broke through the past cultural revolution theme, who wrote the story from a new perspective on history. Not sensational, but still fully examine the influence of cruel history on a person's life. This effect may even continue for generations.It is a rare restraint of reflection in the way of a dramatic expression for the specific historical events.

The story also showed many details of current social reality, such as homosexuality, the shortage of resources in the aging society, etc.. This makes the film have a realistic style through the times.
