watched CRAZY RICH ASIANS with my friend
storyline did not appeal to me much ( got me ) , featuring a Chinese girl who was born in a less-off family( no money, no good connections ) , looked down on by her bf's family, but finally she overcame difficulties and got engaged with Nick.
a happy ending ! although I have seen similar stories in a lot of Chinese movies.
to be short, this movie does not only showed how rich they are ( big gap between upper class and lower class ) but also different cultural concepts between Asians and western people.
some Chinese traditional virtue, deeply rooted in many people's mind, has existed for two thousand years.
1. it's our responsibility to take care of elder parents
people would consider children as cold-hearted if they send their parents to the home care center.
it has something to do with our traditional virtue that family should always be together. but more importantly, people doubt whether their parents would be treated well in the home care center. every year, a lot of news of old people being abused in nursing home in recent years.
2. we always put family into the first place, when 家庭和个人利益发生冲突.
individualism is not promoted and encouraged in china.
I have a personal experience with ...
Chinese children are obedient, listening to parents
choice to decide what they wanna do
family always forces you to do what you are not interested in ( for the sake of your future)
brother - photographer - travel around the world - returned home and took over the business
those people from upper class are so mean, selfish - judging others by his background.
it's true that you will never be bothered by money.
the gap between the rich and the poor :is widening ranging from clothes to education.
common people could only afford economy class seat while you enjoy first class seat with a big dinner.
common people could only buy discounted clothes from some shopping website while the rich 花钱 luxurious brands such as Dior , YSL
common people could only go to public school some even don't have access to education while well-off people send their children to study abroad ...
but you will be restricted by various rules in this kinda family
your life routine would have been 规划 since you were born.
getting married to a person you have never met and have no feeling just because it's good for family reputation as well as overseas expansion ?
giving up your dream instead taking over family business ?
will you be happy ?
