A beautiful movie about family. Awkwafina is fantastic and I thought Zhao Shuzhen did a great job as well.

"This smart film deftly mixes comedy and tragedy, and manages to be heartfelt without being cloying or sentimental."

I'd heard rave reviews about this film and I was very glad to have watched it. However, it's not going to blow you away. It's a very nice film with good performances. But it isn't a 10/10 by any means. The concept is a wonderful one. Yet it seems to limp to an ending in the last act - and not the one you'd think. It's charming, well acted, has plenty of heart, seems an accurate depiction of Chinese beliefs - so it's well worth a watch. Best to taper expectations though. 7.5/10

This movie is described as a comedy-drama and it is. But I didn’t have many laugh out loud moments. The humor is situational mainly: the writers work up to those moments that make you smile, either because you remember a similar moment in your life, or else because you can’t imagine a similar mo More
