    Beautifuly paced. With a love for food like barbette's feast, and a love for love of the family. 2 years 11 months ago

    It stayed in my memory as a visually attractive film with some semi-interesting food demonstration.
    On re-watch things got way uglier than i would imagine.
    While it is nicely paced as one comment states here, this is actually an irritating 'soap-opera' of the worst kind. And when i say worst kind - i mean the type that desperately wants to be recognized in the world and some silly festivals. No down-to-earth stuff like Kassandra from Venezuela.

    Here is the formula: have some scenes how Asians are learning French, force some scenes of Christian Asians and how they love listening to church music, have a bunch of food (with many meat) in close-up (that is actually not very interesting to look at as it is a mess), have some old guy who looks he is about to die every minute - yet somehow manages to be spoiler ...well, we will never know, but some idiots must be impressed - that's what this pathetic little Ang Lee was very likely thinking when he was making this sterile stinker. He is certainly one of the most over-appreciated filmmakers in the world.

    If i need to say one more positive thing:
    (Chien-lien) Jacklyn Wu is captivating and sexy,
    but unfortunately trapped in a dull scenario.
