a multi-facet realistic story
8 December 2015 | by mizha-81423See all my reviews

The story started with a stubborn retired widow who insisted her involvement in her two sons' life. Before viewers find this line a prototype depicting, a second layer of story was laid, a series of mysterious anonymous calls, brick breaking-in and garbage dropping disrupted the peaceful life of the widow and his sons' family. Naturally, the investigation of the intruder leads to a third layer, going beyond now, unveiling another disturbing story 40 years ago during the Cultural Revolution. Till now, all three layers' of stories, one paving way for the other, lead to the revealing moment of the intruder. It is a striking ending, as well as heavy and long-lasting.

The movie attempts to not only present a multifaceted portrait of the reality of Chinese society but also probe into its historical roots. Hence it is a rare treasure among its peers.
