Press Release:

Generations clash around the dining table in Ang Lee’s charming comedy-drama about widowed master chef Chu (the extraordinary Sihung Lung) and his three thoroughly modern daughters. A foodie’s delight, the plot revolves around Chu’s elaborately prepared Sunday dinners—gatherings that trace the sometimes surprising changes in relationships both inside and outside the family. “The movie’s main appeal—beyond stomach yearnings caused by its cuisine—comes from the actors, who infuse their archetypal roles with comedic appeal” (Desson Thomson, Washington Post). (Dir.: Ang Lee, Taiwan/United States, 1994, 124 min., English and Mandarin with English subtitles)
