A Simple Life

Dir: Ann Hui
Starring: Andy Lau, Deanie Ip

Some movies indulge in sentimentality like a lonely guy in his mid-30s might indulge in an all-night session of Call of Duty.

A Simple Life doesn't do that (at least not at first). It draws you in, with it's intricate relationship between Lau and Ip. And then it breaks you down with it's story of appreciation and loss.

It also depicts an interesting side of life in Hong Kong, and it shows some amazing cantonese food, like boiled ox tongue.

Rating: Good ox tongue, good film
