We do not need the colorfulness in Man Cheng Jin Dai Huang Jin Jia (Curse of the Golden Flower); we do not need the big movie stars and expensive publicity of Wu Ji (The Promise); neither do we need the unreal Gongfu in Wo Hu Cang Long (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). What we need is something from real life.
While the fifth generation of directors in China are leading the Chinese film industry astray with their big budgets, big scenes and big plots for their vain pursuit of Oscar, we need films such as Wo Men Lia (You and Me) to take us back to the reality, which is far more life and touching.
Hooray for the birth of a new generation of directors. Hooray for finding our own unique way of developing Chinese films.
