I’d like to invite you to watch this micro-movie “Heaven’s Lunch” (天堂午餐). It lasts for only 6 minutes and has English subtitles. After 40 days since it was uploaded to a Chinese video website, four millions people have watched it.

The story is simple. A young man is cooking a lunch for his mother for the first time, but his mother has passed away. After the table is set, he sits with his mother’s portrait.

The movie is written and directed by Liu Xiaoyu (刘啸宇), a college student of Hebei Institute of Communication. He used a camera to shot the scene which is his parents’ home. The total expense is under 200 yuan (30 US$).
