Life affirmingBy a customer , 29 Aug 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Absolutely fantastic life affirming film. The performances are wonderful, working with a tremendous script. its very slow moving, developing the characters and relationships so if you like all action unthinking films its not for you. But if you like films that make you think, then give it a go.

A Simple LifeBy a customer , 02 Dec 2013Warm and gentle. This film reminds you what's important in life. No special affects or great action, just a lovely story of two ordinary people and what matters.
Truly heartwarming.By Brummiegal (1 review) , 30 Oct 2013It's a beautiful touching film, yes, it is a bit slow but not everything has to be at 100 miles an hour to be enjoyable. The relationship which changes and develops is truly heartwarming and if it is based on a true story then it only makes it sweeter.
Heart warmingBy a customer , 20 Sep 2013Tired of CGI? Welcome to a heart warming tale, an insight to HK life and our culture differences. Slow paced but such a welcomed break from much of the regurgitated drivel, no plot films.
BEAUTIFUL TALEBy GAVINFLEMING (30 reviews) from Edinburgh , 29 May 2013Beautiful Hong Kong film with a documentary feel, focussing on the relationship between a wealthy young man and the ageing family retainer who brought him up and worked for the family for fifty years. When she moves into a care home after a stroke their relationship deepens and the extended cast of characters as well as the two leads make this a bittersweet must see, on a par with Amour.
A simple life.By regos (1 review) , 27 May 2013One of the nicest films I have seen for some time. Well acted, moving and compassionate. Deannie Yip is full of charm. Slowly paced and all the better for it.
