Life is full of unpredictability. All we can and should do is cherish every single day. We’re all aware of this, but it’s more convincing heard from someone with limited days to live.
Some say the tone of the story seems too lighthearted for a film following the last days of a young woman fighting against terminal cancer.
But if you’ve read Xiong’s comic series of the same name or glanced over the posts on her micro blog, you know that the film’s archetypal character is just an unbelievable optimistic woman full of positive energy.
Bai Baihe, 31, is wonderful as Xiong in the film and excellently delivers an uplifting and optimistic performance. When Xiong says goobye to her loved ones, Bai’s acting is at its peak. We can feel Xiong’s helplessness and deep love for life.
But it pays an inspiring and emotional tribute to the cartoonist and helps audiences better understand the meaning of life through laughter and tears.
