Essence
Although the “double yellow egg” does not seem to be uncommon, the two Chinese movies are recognized by such international awards. Interestingly, there are two weddings in the two films, which presents the Chinese’s understanding of marriage, family, and human nature from different perspectives. In “Fragile Girl”, her mother -in -law is a woman who is persecuted by the old ethics, but she has also become a person who continues to persecute her daughter -in -law unknowingly. She uses unjustly means to make innocent girls marry her mental retarded son. The absurd behavior of the son at the wedding made people sigh. It was not until the end of her mother -in -law, but it seemed late. There is also a absurd Chinese wedding in “Happy Banquet”. The groom and groom have become a tool for maintaining the face of the man’s parents. In addition, the vulgar wedding scenes make the whole wedding a farce.
