Her movies have their unique style and research value, particularly in the areas of feminist research. In her films, she presents women's real-life situations and difficulties in social life,their performance of self-seeking, and their process of growth of them. She not only gives women deep、objective humane care but also constantly thinks about how women get freedom and happiness in themselves、society、marriage and love through her unique Feminist thought.
