In this ‘Earl of Piaget Award of Excellence’, it won the full support of the judges in one fell swoop, and its splendor and maturity are beyond doubt. Judge Ono said, ‘Because the story is too simple, it highlights the excellence of the screenwriter. The character’s experience and the changes in the plot make the ordinary humanity have a richer connotation. Each story echoes back and forth, and the structure is perfect. It is really a masterpiece. Lin Mengshan also appreciates the way that director Chen Zheyi tells the story: ‘The film uses very plain shots and accurate figures to describe the current situation of the family and society. The director said that the story was flat but very charming.’ Hong Weiming praised even more: ‘It’s hard to find a very ordinary story that allows you to re-examine everything that happened to you while reading a letter. This director, who is under 30, Actually has the ability to tell the story so clearly, not to ridicule! A rare movie that looks ordinary but will make people remember! ‘Lu Shufen shared with emotion:’ The story description is very smooth, nothing The carved traces are close to real life, but they are also thought-provoking. ‘

Liu Yuxuan, Managing Director of Earl Piaget, said: ‘A plain family story describes profound human nature and feelings, highlights social issues and emotional conflicts, characterization, clear personality, and clever connection, creating an overall story.’ ‘Parents Are Absent’ takes away the key to the ‘Count Piaget Award of Excellence’.
Director Chen Zheyi received the ‘Count Piaget Award of Excellence’ from Hou Xiaoxian, Chairman of the Golden Horses Committee, and Gu Teng, President of Piaget Asia Pacific. He said that ‘The Parents Are Not Home’ is based on the story of his childhood, and he also hopes to convey the issues and concepts he wants to explore through the interpretation of the film. Chen Zheyi feels very pleased that she won the ‘Earl of the Year Award of Excellence’ and won positive reviews from outside the film industry. ‘I hope that anyone who watched’ Parents and Absent at Home ‘can get something out of it, think about it, and change it.’
