Any lau is my fave and was amazing in the role!
Ah Tao was an orphan when she began working for the Leung family and so has never had a family of her own beyond the one she's worked for all her life.
Overall, "A Simple Life" is a profound film from director Anna Hui that captures the story of the elderly, aging and frailty but also human nature.
A story of a man who takes care of his nanny\mother figure after she has a stroke. Any lau is my fave and was amazing in the role! A++ moviePublished 1 month ago by Sarri P.
It leaves up the title of the movie. It describes well on how ones take things for granted, and life is short...It is a wake up call for me to embrace my family, and the loved one.Published 4 months ago by May Madsen
This is perhaps the best of the films shown at Ebertfest, 2014. A small, sweet film based on a true story, it concerns an aging servant of a Hong Kong family. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Richard B. Schwartz
A Simple Life is a totally unpretentious movie that tells its story so naturally, that it borders on a documentary. A Hong Kong film that is a world class achievment.Published 10 months ago by William Temanu
Great movie. This was an accurate description of relations between "ah-mas" and their children in Hong Kong. I know.
Other than being a means of keeping up with my Chinese, it also had a lot of Shanghai dialect in it as well so I could keep up with both. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Pat Welsh
