Shenzhen businessman, Da Ming, goes home to Beijing when he thinks his father has died. He finds his father hard at work at the family's bathhouse (the false message was a ruse of Da's mentally-handicapped, exuberant brother, Er Ming, to get Da home). Da stays a couple days, observing his father being social director, marriage counselor, and dispute mediator for his customers and a boon companion to Er. Da is caught between worlds: the decaying district of his childhood and the booming south where he now lives with a wife who's not met his family. When Da realizes his father's health is failing and the district is slated for razing, he must take stock of family and future.Written by
What a refreshing film. Da Ming, the eldest brother returns to his fathers bath-house business because he thinks his father is ill. When he finds out the contrary, he wants to go back to the big city, but soon realizes that his family is more important than making money.
Millions of people are flocking to see "Hannibal" disembowel and eat people. How nice to see a film about people who love each other and are NICE to each other.
A funny, touching, heartbreaking, wonderful movie that will make you feel better about the human race, rather than want to retch.
