"A moving and contemplative cinematic rumination on the challenge of growing old."
Critically acclaimed Hong Kong 'New Wave' director Ann Hui tackles the challenge of growing old in a moving and contemplative film. The story follows the relationship between a 40-something man and his family's amah, who has been in their employ for 60 years. After she suffers a stroke, they reverse roles and he looks after her. Working with an excellent script and cast (Deanie Ip won the Best Actress award at Venice), Hui combines elements of satire, rich characterisation and several amusing star cameos.
