Touching movie about mother-daughter relationship
31 March 2004 | by zzmaleSee all my reviews

The literal translation of the title of this movie is: Moon Crescent.

This movie is a touching, in fact, a very touching depiction of the mother-daughter relationship. It might not appear so to westerners but it is for Chinese, simply because Chinese women have suffered thousands of years discrimination by the traditional Confucian teaching. Such heavy burden of the dross in the traditional culture does not evaporate overnight by the overthrown of the Qing Dynasty, which ended thousands of years of feudal rule of China. Women live in 1920's China had no better fate than those lived under feudal reign because there was no difference. This is why the movie is especially touching for women who had lived through that era.
