@Ang Mo, wow, I didn't recognize that Happy Times
girl in 2046
. Such a shame she didn't get that many breaks as Zhang Ziyi had. I have to admit that despite being a sad film, Happy Times was very nice portrayal of life's inconveniences such as poverty.
@ginny, sad to hear that movie brought back some sensitive memories for you. But at least yours had a bright ending.
I wonder if any of you have seen The Colour Purple
. It's a Steven Spielberg film and if I'm not mistaken, it was Whoopi Goldberg's debut film. If there's a laugh a minute movie, this might qualify as cry a minute. I watched this in a hotel room and it just ruined the rest of my day. I don't wonder why Whoopi starts making comedies after that... must have been depressing for her too. It's about persecusions of African Americans... by African Americans.
Nah, it's more about an abused girl who grew up and became a battered wife. Whoopi and Danny Glover did some great actings there. Oprah was also in it, she's younger and heavier.
Always look on the bright side of life.
