Uncle Tang was a father of five, who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer disease. his condition had became increasingly deteriorating. ShengLiang was the eldest son who left home 10 years ago after a heated argument with his father. he went overseas to pursue his dream in music therapy. when he received a phone call from home, he decided to return home to take care of his father. Fanny was the second eldest in the family. after ShengLiang left home, she took over the burden of taking care of her family, giving her a tough and serious attitude.
before the movie was aired, another episode of "The Making" was aired. it was introduced that the director wanted to implement plenty of music into the film, making it an emotional film for the Chinese New Year. we were also introduced the characters, from one sibling to another. the two eldest siblings stood out among the rest. ShengLiang, the music loving son, was played by Leslie, an award winning actor in 2012. more than once, his attitude outside the screen was intolerable rude. Fanny, the responsible daughter, was played by Debbie, also an award winning actress in 2012. she on the other hand, had such a bubbly character that it was difficult to imagine her playing such a fierce and contrasting character in the film. in the introduction, the director also emphasized more than once on how much he wanted to create a comedy without having an exaggerated effect to it. we were pleased to find that his targets were mostly achieved. unfortunately, the film was completely ruined the moment it ended, as it appeared all too abruptly, left us gaping at the closing credit.
