Yangzi, a ten-year-old girl, stole her mom's diary to discover why her mom abandoned her. But her mom does not want to communicate with her. On her grandma's 60th birthday, they have to face each other.
Yangzi's Confusion is a film about three women, their families, and modern Chinese society. Meihui, who has been successful in her career since her divorce, has a mother who is also divorced and a 10-year-old daughter, Yangzi. Her mother stubbornly lives alone in her country house after her divorce even though her children are willing to take care of her, and her adolescent daughter Yangzi looks into Meihui's diary and gets hurt, thinking that her mother abandoned her. Meihui's twisted family relationship runs to a peak at her mother's 60th birthday party. As industrialization and urbanization progressed, the number of jobs for women increased in Chinese society, and as traditional values and young people's ideas conflicted, the birth rate declined, and the divorce rate increased rapidly. Director LI Jue is delicately delivering the problem of divorce families from the perspective of children and mothers. The performances of Huang Xiaolei as Meihui, who seems successful to others but is terrified by her mother's stubbornness and daughter's defiance, and Zheng Yayun, who plays Yangzi, an adolescent girl with a dry expression, are awe-inspiring.
