About Eat Drink Man Woman

Year Released:
Comedy, Drama
Director Ang Lee’s follow-up to his surprise box-office hit The Wedding Banquet is another look at ethnic and sexual conflicts in a Chinese family, with meals as a centerpiece of the film. Master chef Chu (Sihung Lung) is a long-time widower who lovingly cooks large Sunday dinners for his three daughters. Each daughter maintains a different attitude toward his traditional (and beautifully shot) meals, and a shifting personal relationship to her significant other, as well. In Mandarin and French languages with English subtitles. (35mm presentation)
