Film Review: The Last Woman Standing

By Tatiana Ho

The Last Woman Standing, directed by Luo Luo and starring actress Shu Qi, opens up with a happy wedding celebration. Except for the main character Xiao Sheng and her search to find her one true love, avoiding the arranged marriage proposal made by her mother. The China Lion Film explores the genre of romantic comedies through an optimistic yet cynical main character. The successful business women doesn’t fall short from the “average person”, with her own set of clumsy mannerisms and mishaps. As expected, Xiao Sheng’s life changes once she meets the new assistant of her company Ma Sai (Eddie Peng).

Surrounding the office life of the company, The Last Women Standing presents itself as a light hearted film with occasional quirky scenes. The roles of Xiao Sheng’s mother, played by Pan Hong, enhances the movie comedic level. Based on the novel written by Luo Luo, the movie is set to show the life of a woman standing alone from societies pressure to get married at a certain age. Going against all odds and opinions, Xiao Sheng (Shu Qi) shows how waiting for the right one pays off in the end.

The Last Woman Standing (2015) opening in China on November 6, 2015 and on November 11 in the United States. It is said to be Luo Luo directorial debut, a promise for more movies in the coming future. To see the trailer go to, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSrmLPMmjbk.
