I went to watch this movie with Rach last Friday. Some critics said that the movie is filled with stupid and lame jokes. But I found the movie particularly inspiring. I lost count of the times I cried in the movie....yes, you heard it right. I cried. What? Man cannot cry meh. We can be sensitive also what.....
Anyways, the movie is about the Yang brothers, eldest Yang Bao Hui (the poorest of the lot), second Yang Bao Qiang (successful businessman) and the youngest Yang Bao Huang (regional supervisor of a health supplement product) and their old and nyanyuk mother.
As the winds of fortune changes, the brother’s begin to neglect their elderly mother. It was easy to be generous and filial during the good times but when household budgets tighten, what is the cost of true filial piety? Even the most basic arrangements, including whom mom should stay with, become a contentious issue.
This movie helps us to reflect at our own priorities while giving us a chance to laugh at ourselves.
