  • The movie has an emotional payoff I failed to anticipate. It expresses hope in human nature. It is one of the year's best films. show more

  • A Simple Life may have one of the most accurate titles in all of cinema, as the film has a bracingly casual sense of day-to-day working-class life that recalls the films of Jean Renoir or, more recently, Olivier Assayas. show more

  • Director Hui shows a different side to Hong Kong cinema in a tender drama that's illuminated by the marvellous Ip. show more
