Shower (1999)


Director:  Zhang Yang

Starring:  Jiang Wu, Pu Quanxin, Zeng He, Jue Yuk




Zhang Yang's family comedy-drama tells a simple and familiar story. After misinterpreting a message from his retarded younger brother Er Ming (Jiang Wu) to mean that their father (Zhu Xu) is dying, slick businessman Da Ming (Pu Cun Xin) comes down from the north to visit them. While he finds his father to be in good health and running the village bathhouse as smoothly as ever, other circumstances force Da Ming to extend his visit longer than planned.

In spending time with his family, the family business, and the second family that is the bathhouse's regular customers, Da Ming learns that there's something valuable in this simple life--perhaps more valuable than the material life he had been leading.

Shower is predictable and wears its heart on its sleeve, and that's part of its charm; but while the film is unabashedly sentimental, Zhang doesn't feel the need to bash the audience over the head with melodramatic tactics. He simply lets the emotion of the story come through in the performances, and the actors succeed wonderfully.
