It's not easy to make movies that represent part of the past in your area.
the scent of green papaya movie mention of about fifty years ago in the Taiwan region of the film's history.
The movie shows the life style and middle and lower class behaviors in the midst of a relatively quite reach family that is struggling with its own problems.
Paying to the subject of the story takes time well, so time spend less during watching the movie.
Seeing this movie, you're in the midst of movie, and as a member of this family, you're having troubles.
The key point is the communication gap, and even gender, is respect for Taiwanese lifestyle in the past.
The form and shape and even the look from top to bottom, in the order of the family, indicate the distance between its members.
We are faced with a situation in which the husband of the family goes away and noone not aware of him, and The The grandmother define the bride mistakes, and the contemplative consideration is to accept the responsibilities of the bride of the family.
The key points during this sequence are the inner roar of the second son of the family against this attitude that leads to abnormal behaviors.
All of this is seen as a rural girl looking at a house as a maid.
He is a very disciplined and loving one, he takes the steps of progress in his growth and becomes a successful woman even more than his own limit.
It can also be viewed from the perspective of luck, but what matters is the success of Mui to the achievement of its wishes that are contemplative and loving and in keeping with the audience's desire.
Ultimately, the overall outline of the movie is a good start, an interesting continuation, but lastly, an unconventional one, it can be imagined that a good score could ultimately be made for this film.
