A Simple Life (2011) Honk Kong

When the time comes, sometime the role will swap.


Original title:
Tao Jie (Cantonese)

A fine family drama, there was no over emotions but a simple story and I loved it to the core. I love kids movies as well old people character movies, my heart will melt when I see them struggle. I am really very happy to have a Hong Kong movie after a long time and I am glad I picked particularly this.

Andy Lau, vastly known name if anyone familiar with the Hong Kong movies. Many his movies are my favourites and goes this movie as well to that list. This movie is about the two normal people's relationships, an old maid and his young owner. It was quite different, when maid turns too old left no strength to serve his owner what comes to her rescue is to repay for her long and faithful service she did. Like I said the movie get rid of the sappy melodrama and portrayed like that happening in a real environment.

This movie does not have any twist and was very plain. The story development was steady and gives away the audience to where it is heading so if you are a smart enough you will get it before you finish watching it. This is the movie, the characters it had that make us to judge what we have done in our whole life, someday when we become old. This movie deserves an ovation and all the credits goes to the writers and the director. A must see movie.
