A good movie

Since this movie was the last one directed by Ang Lee that I hadn't watch so far, of course, I was really eager to watch the damned thing. Well, eventually, it turned out to be a decent watch but it was definitely not one of Lee's best movies and it was pretty obvious that it was a directing debut. Indeed, it was visually efficient but, not much more than that but the focus was on the characters a... read more

“Since this movie was the last one directed by Ang Lee that I hadn't watch so far, of course, I was really eager to watch the damned thing. Well, eventually, it turned out to be a decent watch but it was definitely not one of Lee's best movies and it was pretty obvious that it was a directing debut. Indeed, it was visually efficient but, not much more than that but the focus was on the characters and what they were going through and, fortunately, Lee managed to deliver something interesting in this area, focusing on the clash between Eastern and Western cultures and between the modern and traditional ways of life.

"13.3. Taiwanilainen vanhus on muuttanut USA:han poikansa ja tämän vaimon luokse viettämään eläkepäiviään. Nuo länsimaalaiset ovat niin ha ha -hauskoja kun haluavat olla rauhassa ja jotain omaa tilaakin kun eihän meillä Kiinassa mitään sellaista ollut. Lopussa vanha pappa näyttää, että asiat hoidetaan lähinnä hakkaamalla muut kiinalaisravintolassa. Olen silti sitä mieltä, että jokainen "kulturellista" trendiammatista (90-luvun alussa kirjailija, nykypäivänä ehkä muoti"
