Storyline

Tao Lan and Yu Xiaoqin are teenage stepsisters. They go to the same high school, sleep in the same bedroom, but couldn't be more different. The first is wild, a bit of a vagabond, while the other is diligent and studies hard. One day Yu Xiaoqin steals money from her father and puts the blame on Tao Lin, who accidentally kills her sister while attempting to prove her innocence, and is put in jail. 17 years later, a woman by now, she is allowed out and is escorted by a guard to find her home long demolished. The two go to the new address of the ageing parents, and the guard becomes an eyewitness to the difficult reunion and the girl's remorse, the anxiety and fear of the mother and the stepfather's silent struggle to rise above his pain and find forgiveness.

It's a very good movie, you should see it
18 June 2006 | by yi358See all my reviews

This is one of the movies banned by China. I rented this movie out of curiosity as to see why it was banned.

This is a very good movie, it makes you think about parenting and playing it fair to your children. The family is complex since the father has a daughter from prior marriage and the mother also has a daughter from a prior marriage. After this movie, I thought about parenting. The parents need to be sensitive to each child's development. One of the daughter is academic, obviously with high IQ and excelled in school. However, this high IQ daughter has pretty low EQ. She is not a team player and she is ambitious and eager to have a successful and more luxurious life in the future. The other daughter is not doing as good in academics. She is proud of her working class background, more outgoing and unlike the other daughter, she is a team player who wants to contribute to her school's extracurricular activities, etc.

In Chinese culture, people place too much emphasis on academic achievement. I think if you watch this movie, you would think about a child's ethical and moral standards as important attributes in a child's development as well.

Without giving away too much of the movie, I highly recommend people to see this movie. You won't regret it.
