Critic Reviews for A Beautiful Life
[Lau] successfully balances satire and sentimentality in the first half, but loses his bearings in the sappier second part.
Whatever does work here - mainly a soulful performance by Liu Ye - ultimately gets lost in the excess.
The film strains credulity by pushing its characters wildly to and fro with a shamelessly sentimental screenplay.
Set among the mean streets and meaner people of downtown Los Angeles, this laughably clichéd dive into sexual masochism and hardscrabble survival replaces story with outline and characters with place holders.
It's tough to find comedy in a dead-serious, skid-row-set film about homelessness, sexual abuse, incest and the exploitation of immigrants, but the misguided A Beautiful Life manages to provide unintentional laughs by the barrel.
