Critic Reviews for Stolen Life (Sheng Si Jie)
This one hits home in places, but overall it begs for a lighter touch.
For all its rough immediacy and cool tone, Stolen Life is nothing more or less than an old-fashioned class-antagonism melodrama.
The filmmaker takes stock with brutal candor of the traumatic turn of events in new market economy China, as the national social support system in place is increasingly dismantled for the sake of foreign greed and profit.
Audience Reviews for Stolen Life (Sheng Si Jie)
This movie shows us the life of peasant people in a Chinese city but it could happen in any other city's poor and underground neighborhood. The story is narrated by Yanni who is a girl that was raised by her grandmother and her aunt in an extreme affection-less world that shaped her low self-stime. Finally, she had the chance for a new life, and she went to college but since the first day she gets involved with a stranger, Muyu, who seems to care about her but he doesn't care about his wife and child. So, he abandons them to be with Yanni who is pregnant. Worth watching!
