A simple story that have meaningful lesson
Ah Tao, an old maid in Hong Kong who have served Roger’s family for four generations suffering stroke that make her deciding to retire and move into old people’s place. She recover her stroke there, learns many thing and also is treated well. Every once a week, her master Roger visits her and accompanies her to take a walk. Sometimes, Roger’s mom also comes to visit Ah Tao and bring her many useful things. Roger’s family really love Ah Tao and feel thankful after what she has done for them about 60 years long by taking care of their family.
‘A Simple Life’ have shown that a simple story could give good impression and enjoyable to watch. The storyline is not complicated at all, the movie goes on slowly and very detail. Ann Hui as a director tries to make it safe and straight without any meaningful conflicts which sometimes could make audience feels bored watching it. The relationship between Roger and Ah Tao built really well, it shows how they support and take care one another even sometimes telling jokes. Credits should be given to Andy Lau and Deannie Yip, their acting is so natural as two characters who has known each other for a long time. Overall, ‘A Simple Life’ is a memorable Chinese movie I’ve seen recently. Actually I felt exhausted during watching ‘A Simple Life’ because of it’s slow plot but when I rewind what I just saw, the movie isn’t bad at all and has so much lesson to be learned from it. It teaches audience to respect and appreciate people who has done good things in lives and not forgetting their merit.
My rating: 9
How to write about simple movie? And how tell about simple life? How to live such life? Perhaps the answer to these questions lie exactly here. But first, it takes strength and courage to overcome yourself, your self-esteem, dreams and ambitions. It takes curiosity and thirst for life.
The film comes into our minds easily and quickly shows us the power of being, of being born with the fate of being a human being in its overall appearance. Shows how quickly are changing the roles of young and old, it shows what should be the relationship between people, always. It shows where is the spring of goodness and that it is there because “You have to be at rest first with yourself before helping others”… with unabated good that enjoys anyone to whom it touches. That everyone accepts as a given, but feels the pain of its loss.
How nice it is when our deepest desires are so simple. When we are truly, picky, but because we are looking for soul mates. How nice it is to experience the happiness of loving relatives, to know your place and perhaps, most importantly, not cheating in first place – not cheating yourself.
