A decade after A Brighter Summer Day , Yang again used a family to scrutinize 21st century Taipei life. Mom wants to take time off in the monastery; and Pa, in a mid-life crisis, meets his first love again. Little Brother suddenly finds his classmate adorable. Traumatised by adolescent love, Older Sister receives comfort from the miraculously awaken Grandma. The title reminds us to look at life’s complexity in an easy way, last words from the master.
