Andy Lau plays Roger, a film producer who is one of only two remaining occupants of the apartment where he was brought up.
The other is the ageing household maid-cum-nanny, Ah Tao Deannie Ipwho has been with the family since she was a teenager. When Ah Tao has a stroke and asks to be put into a care home, Roger unhesitatingly takes on the administrative and financial burden himself.
To other inhabitants of the care home, Ah Tao introduces him as her "god-son" and Roger realises this is how he now thinks of himself — or perhaps simply as her son. There is no overtly redemptive purpose to Roger's character development, and in some ways he remains a reserved, even unsympathetic character.
He seems initially to have discovered that this care home is a bit of a ripoff, until he discovers that it's owned by an old mate prepared to give him a discount: Later, Roger uses thugs to evict a sitting tenant from a family property.
A sad and sombre film that uses a plangent piano soundtrack to tug at the heartstrings, but tempers this with a downbeat reality.Korean movie reviews from , including The President's Last Bang, Crying Fist, A Bittersweet Life, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, Welcome to Dongmakgol, and more.
