小雾与母亲住北京胡同,不仅住同一个屋檐下,还睡同张床。小雾是编剧,母亲也写作,两人兴趣一致,脾气也相同,成日唠叨吵闹。她们是敌人也是伙伴,更是彼此的爱情顾问。在饭桌、尿盆、碗筷中互相攻击、 防御,却也在彼此最脆弱的时候给予抚慰、疗伤。

《长江图》剪辑师杨明明首次执导长片,态度直爽、节奏明快,更请来知名制片及实力派演员耐安演出关键的母亲一角。片中以全新视角呈现另一种现代中国, 也刻画了母女之间互相拒斥、仇恨、伤害,呈现日常之中的奇观,从母女俩的生活切片入手,老屋里上演的奇特战争,演绎了当代中国的柔情与快乐。

Girls Always Happy portrays a single mother who lives with her daughter in a Beijing hutong. Looking at the contemporary urban life with a novel and often times satirical perspective, the flm represents the spectacle of mutual repulsion, hatred, and harm between a single mother and her daughter; and yet from their despair rises the power of tender love. The complexity indicates the unique observation on female relationships by director Yang Mingming, who also plays the leading role of the daughter.
