THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL opens with a shot of a rather plump girl on stage with a prize ribbon. Ha ha, this is my most beautiful girl? Great, cause I love comedies.
We cut to a scene of our Beauty at the dinner table with a huge plate of food and her family making jokes about her insatiable appetite. And she counters with Mom will tell you who is the prettiest.
The signature item (9SI) “Flower” is used in a clever way, as flowers given to her sisters are used as a way to measure “who is prettiest”. Ning realizes it is time for a change and begins to exercise and control her passion for food. However, losing weight is tough. But Ning’s spirit is rewarded when a man is inspired but her physique and offers to train her as a weight thrower. The prize ribbon she received was for her athletic skills! This brought a beautiful smile from her and frowns from her sisters in the audience.
Beauty is not on the outside, but the inner determination and success we realize as a person. Excellent filmmaking us realize its not what is on the outside that counts, but the determination and passion to strive to be our best.
