5.0 out of 5 stars A simple, wonderful film., 13 Nov 2012

This review is from: A Simple Life [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
For some reasons, oriental movie-makers have te secret of making simple movies that are powerful and moving, just because, in their simplicity, they reach the very depths of our heart. Full of movie stars, nonetheless utterly unpretentious, it presents simple facts in the simplest, crystal clear, most touching, moving way. A deep human experience in movie form. I hope this UK edition includes the extras of the Hong-Kong edition I just watched, because the "no regrets" documentary, in which cast members reflect on old age, illness, death and the human condition is also beautiful. Don't miss is if you think that cinema is more than pop corn and car chases; if you think that art, in general, has something to say about us, human beings.

This film is wonderful. It manages to convey so much with very little dialogue or explaination. The cultural information is fascinating too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Simple Life [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This movie is great it has two great Hong Kong Actor/Actress, Andy Lau who stared in "House of Flying Daggers", " Infernal Affairs" and Deanie Ip who stared in the Hong Kong cult classic "Spiritual Love" and "Carry On Pickpocket". This film is not a action film so some people might be disappointed. The story is about Roger (Andy Lau) who has to put his maid Chung Chun To (Deanie Ip) into a care home. I was surprise at just how good this movie was considering a lot of the movie is just talking but with 33 Awards you cant go wrong with this movie.

The Alex Welsh Band brings back memories of a superb group. The films are all required viewing for serious cinema admirers.
