          I would much rather be told by my family that I am dying so I can treasure every moment I have left with them. You never know when a miracle can happen.

              Asian in western is pretty much shit and no one respect them. They give up on their own country and culture. No one ever respects those kind of people. Just like why no one respect Immigration and they never able to be a higher class

                  I love movies like this and I'm excited but I think Australia is going to be one of the last countries to get it, it comes out on the 5th of September.
                  OMG I just checked and this movie is at EXCLUSIVE CINEMAS IN SYDNEY. Almost half the bleeping population in Sydney speak Mandarin. I hope this changes closer to the date, that's ridiculous!

                      My grandmother was diagnosed with cervical cancer last November. She was gone before thanksgiving. I didn’t think it was legal to not tell someone they were terminal?

                              Great movie! Nuanced and real. Family is family and interpersonal relationships have the same dynamics in every culture.

                                  I haven't seen this movie yet, but I find the trailer both fascinating and disturbing. It reminds me a bit of "Good-bye Lenin." In particular, I wonder how this movie's message squares up with the political situation in China. That people prefer to live with lies than "to live in truth" (Havel)? That an elaborate, state-wide system of deceptions is justified to maintain communal/national/political cohesion? That truth is shameful? That one lives better (and longer) with pipe-dreams than truth? That this is the political culture in China, and ideas of individual autonomy are foreign to it?

                                  I also wonder if the director offers a subtle/allegorical critique of the Chinese system of government or an affirmation of its methods? Or both?

                                            This movie was terrible and a waste of time. Extremely slow and boring. Poorly written. I expected to watch this and feel connection and inspired about the meaning of life, death, family, or SOMETHING. Nothing. The characters just whine and argue about the same thing the entire movie. The trailer tells you exactly what happens and you finish the movie without learning or feeling anything new.

                                            I come from an Asian heritage and have dealt with illness in my own families. Just pointing that out. I still found this movie boring and would never watch it again. I truly don’t understand how this movie got good reviews.

                                                                                I lived in China and though Im not Chinese in my experience I would think the younger Chinese generation would be more prone to tell people the truth and the older would keep in a secret to maintain harmony in the family. The younger ones, I think, believe even though harmony is important and keeping secrets is on a case by case basis, they would more likely feel compelled to speak out. This is from my experience teaching young and older adults as well as children in China for 6 years. When you ask them questions about sex, love, family life and such the younger ones tend to be more opinionated about what can or cannot be done whereas the older folks tend to follow a more balanced or maybe even conservative view on things. Sometimes they are conservative because a situation requires time and patience before the necessary action and sometimes the younger people felt compelled to speak out about something because waiting was making the problem worse. The mainland Chinese are so diverse in opinions from grandparents all the way down to the present generation. It's as if they all come from different countries but speak the same language because their views are generally so divergent with each other about things. In the presence of a foreign teacher that holds open discussions about particular topics students are sometimes quite surprised to hear each others answers since cross generation communication about important matters is not discussed as equals but rather in a hierarchical manner. The older speak and the younger listen and in an open forum the younger get to open express their opinions and their reasoning and the older has to listen because they are students, equals, in that particular situation. There is also a subset group of minority Chinese who feel set aside from the normal Han population and they have similar or divergent views on life issues compared to the Han Chinese. I like the film because it shows a family that had adjusted to American life and so understood the East and West contrast and I feel that since I lived in the East, I can understand the differences and similarities between them without going into false generalizations. My own parents were immigrants too so this film, coupled with my experiences abroad, feels quite right in the heart.
