World's Best Movies: A Simple Life

Life simply and gracefully goes on in Ann Hui’s at times gently humourous, often intensely moving but never outwardly sentimental drama. The multiple award-winning film sees the veteran director achieve tonal perfection in an ongoing thematic exploration that she began with 2006’s ‘The Postmodern Life of My Aunt’ and continued with 2008’s ‘The Way We Are’. ‘A Simple Life’ is a slice-of-life masterpiece dealing compassionately with the inevitable ageing process, the loneliness that comes with it and the human connections that can turn it all into a small, bittersweet triumph.
