Rou qing shi / 2018 / People's Republic of China / 117 min
Girls Always Happy portrays a single mother living with her daughter in a Beijing Hutong. Looking at the contemporary urban life with a novel perspective, the film represents the spectacle of mutual repulsion, hatred, and harm between a single mother-daughter, and yet from their despair grows the power of tender love. The complexity indicates the unique observation and expression of the director Yang Mingming on female relationships.
