One of Ang Lee's earliest works, this comedy/drama is an excellent mix of unconventional characters, delicate family dynamics, cross cultural exchanges and a decidedly mixed ending. Ang Lee knows how to extract humour from settings that are not over the top and write compassionate yet flawed characters that don't feel artificial.

The title of the review? An exchange between two char... read more

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. However, I remember it very well when it came out, my sister was really enthusiast about the damned thing and told me I should definitely check it out.

Welcome to the Chinese wedding of the year, where everyone wants to kiss the bride... except the groom! This "top-notch comedy" (Leonard Maltin) is nothing less than delicious.

"17.3. Ang Leen trilogian toisessa osassa homomiehen vanhemmat ilmoittavat tulevansa käymään ja ainoa ratkaisu on pistää pystyyn heteroshow. Meininki on tavallaan kuin kirjekaverijuonileffoista parhaimmillaan, mutta leffan umpisurkea huumori pilaa muuten kelvollisen tahattoman vammaisuuden. Lopussa opitaan, että homotkin voivat olla ihan ok kunhan kännipäissään kuksivat myös naisia, jotta yrmyfaija saa lapsenlapsen."
