Audience Reviews for Nu ren si shi (Summer Snow)
The characters feel very real and relatable. The story does a good job of combining comedy with genuine emotion. This film makes me want to see more Ann Hui films.
A human drama by Ann Hui, well-known as one of the most successful films both critically and financially. Surely it can be said as a milestone of modern HK cinema, since it is a rare serious human drama which sets a woman as the center character and describes some common issues to people like aging and social status of female which have not been focused much in HK films of the past. Although it is an innovative film, the characters seems to be over-simplified, and it was hard for me to get really involved to the story. Performances of the actors are all monotonous, especially Josephine Siao (Although I like her very much as an actress). Roy Chiao, who's in a lot of classic wuxia films, gives a fresh performance in the difficult role, but again, how the film describes his dementia is too fictionalized, I think. It tries to describe the process in which an old guy who gets dementia gets avoided by his sons and daughters at first but finally unites his family, but it's not focused. Although it is meaningful film historically in HK film business, there's no new things technically in it - it's just a normal work.
