A Simple Life Blu-Ray Review
 


Synopsis: Roger (Andy Lau) is a successful movie producer. Ah Tao (Deanie Ip) has worked for Roger's family as a nanny and maid over the course of four generations. When Roger comes home to find Ah Tao's suffered a severe stroke and is unable to care for herself, he agrees to help her relocate to a nursing home. 

He wants to help, but fears he'll fail her. She needs his kindness, but doesn't want to be a burden. As their roles reverse, he becomes her caregiver, and comes to understand how much she means to him. 

One of 2012's most heralded and treasured films, with cameo appearances from film luminaries such as Sammo Hung and Tsui Hark, A SIMPLE LIFE has garnered multiple awards for Deanie Ip (Best Actress), Andy Lau (Best Actor), Susan Chan (Best Screenplay), and Ann Hui (Best Director). A SIMPLE LIFE has also won Best Feature Film in multiple festivals and made film critics' Top 10 lists all over the world

Review: A Simple Life is one of the rare dramatic features that could easily dip into the cliche and sappy, but stays at a level of subtle vulnerability and legitimate feeling.  This film, about an aging couple where the husband has to take care of the wife medically, brings anyone that has been in a long term relationship through a familiar journey of discovery.  This film is absolutely phenominal in every facet.  We highly recommend this one!

Interest Range: Drama
