I thought, this is only the beginning of happiness, and this is actually the happiness, only in a wink. Face the life, always face the life, understand its essence. Finally, recognize it and love it. And then, get out of it.
That’s time we have been self erosion and have no way to escape
A film with a deep soul ray and a string like rhythm.
I always remember the opening speech “she would buy the flowers herself. in a single day. Just one day. And in that day… her whole life. This is what we need”
Three flowers in different time and space, the same extraordinary soul, the film told the three women’s life in different time on the same day, their heart, does not stop on the struggle and struggle, death, always! What is the film exploration for life, about the meaning of life, it is the inspiration for the dream, we should always dare to face life, and love life.
