“My Dear Liar” is the director of the Shen Ao for the first film, his film won The 33rd China Golden Rooster Film Awards for best director debut. Lead actress Liu Yan won the best actress award at the 11th Macau International Film Festival for My Dear Liar, but the film itself failed to achieve the expected box office and public praise, scoring only 6.6 points on Douban review, with more than half of users scoring three stars. The film's production ability, scene and performance of the actors have been recognized in the industry, but the narrative is unsatisfactory, and the box office is difficult to break 100 million. Whether the narrative structure, role setting and narrative rhythm of “My Dear Liar” have room to be discussed, this paper will further interpret the film.
