2011 | Ann Hui

A Simple Life

Winner of five 2012 Hong Kong Film Awards including Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Actress, and Actor (it was also Hong Kong’s official entry for this year’s Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film), this deceptively simple but emotionally rich movie charts the relationship between an elderly family servant (Deanie Ip) and the middle-aged man (Andy Lau) she helped raise from birth. Only now the roles are reversed: the elderly housekeeper has suffered a stroke and her unmarried, career-minded employer must care for her. Features cameos by martial arts movie masters Tsui Hark and Sammo Hung. “Quietly affecting.” –The NY Times. “Film of the month.” –Sight & Sound, August 2012. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles.
