My Penny of View : Ah Tao has worked in Leung family for 60 years. She has served four generations with no regret. In present, the Leung family has migrated to other country and left Roger in Hong Kong. Ah Tao still played her role as servant with patient. Roger always travel for business trip and one day he found Ah Tao stroke attacked at home. Ever since, Ah Tao no longer able to live like normal person and Roger send her to nursing home. What will happen to Ah Tao? Will Roger abandon her in nursing home?

This movie is inspired by a true story and it has won many awards since last year. It's not the first collaboration of Andy Lau and Deanie Ip. Their first movie, The Unwritten Law(法外情), still one of the best Hong Kong movie. The chemistry between Andy Lau and Deanie Ip definitely is good after so many years. I was expecting the movie is going to be very touching but still at the acceptable level. Deanie Ip put a lot of effort for the movie especially in imitation of stroke patient. Bravo for her acting. The morale of the story is very good. Ah Tao was only a servant but she always do her part in full heart without any grumble. Even she was attacked by stroke but she never give up and continue to live on her own. She scarified herself without asking for return. She has live her life to the fullest.
