  • Conclusion: The success of Ann Hui's A Simple Life at various international film festivals is well deserved. Profoundly moving and expertly directed, this is indeed one of last year's best films. If your reside in a Region-B territory, I urge you to consider adding this beautiful Blu-ray release from Arrow Films to your collections. If you reside in North America, you should look at Well Go USA's upcoming Blu-ray release (see our listing here ). VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  • Conclusion: I kept waiting for 'A Simple Life' to revert to the generic and it never did. It plodded along with its sweet story about two people without a care in the world.

  • Conclusion: A Simple Life might have benefited from a little judicious cutting, but even at its slightly bloated feeling running time, it's an often extremely affecting and effective drama showing the last "dance" between two people whose lives have been interlinked for decades. Quiet, subtle and pervasively bittersweet, this is a film designed to bring a lump to just about anyone's throat, but it's also a strangely life affirming tale that shows the indelible bonds two humans can...

  • Excerpt: A Simple Life is een film die een eenvoudig verhaal vertelt, maar dit wel op een mooie, niet te sentimentele manier doet. De film is ook goed geacteerd en geschoten, maar de speelduur had wel een stuk korter gemogen.
