I watched this movie in college for a class I was in about food. I think overall it got very good rating và critics mostly due lớn the way the storyline was weaved together. Likes:- The storyline, very well written, a good story that was told through great characters. - I really enjoyed how multi layered the story was, and how the characters got along with one another. It was a really good look into the intricacies of people"s relationships with one another & how it is okay to lớn challenge the status quo while eating really good food because someone in your life can cook!

Part 3 of Director Ang Lee trilogy on "Father Knows Best"

Director Lee’s trilogy ("Father Knows Best") in bringing together family members to lớn create tension và tender comedic moments shine in this trio of PUSHING HANDS (1991), THE WEDDING BANQUET (1993). And Eat Drink Man Woman (1994).I personally liked this more than the other two movies in Ang Lee"s trilogy listed above! There are several more"twists" in this movie, which makes me lượt thích it better than the other two movies as well!I also have to say that this movie made me SO HUNGRY watching it! In hindsight, I wonder if the director tried to use "food" in this movie as a substitute for "sex", since only one of the daughters was partaking of bedroom time as far as the audience is concerned at first.Mr. Chu (Lung Sihung, the main lead for all three of Ang Lee"s trilogy) is in this movie a widower who raises his three daughters all by himself, with a little assistance from the faithful food tester in the same restaurant he used khổng lồ work, Old Wen (the late Wang Jui https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0910954/ , also see photo page for this movie on MDL).Although he thinks that his daughters enjoy their Sunday dinner he religiously prepares for them, his daughters all dread this Sunday ritual/feast that Mr. Chu labors on every Sunday; partially from his taste buds going bad and the rest from his inability lớn talk/communicate with them. I personally know some fathers who have problems talking khổng lồ their daughters, as they (like Mr. Chu) spends long hours working lớn care for them. The loss of his wife is definitely a strain on Mr. Chu"s relationship with his daughters here.I personally see Mr Chu missing his wife lớn the point of his daughters "reminding" him of her; that would explain his being a father at a distance. I feel that he wants the best for them, but cannot always communicate this; hence, he does the only thing that he knows how lớn - cook for them!His oldest daughter became a science teacher và his youngest daughter is just starting a first job at a Taipei fast-food place & his middle daughter works for an airline.I am not going lớn cover anymore of the details of the movie, but talk about the interactions of the family members. There are several "twists" in this movie but I am only going to hit the major ones.One of the first twists in this movie is the youngest daughter Jia-Ning (Yu-wen Wang https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0911096/) & her best friend"s boyfriend; I saw this coming and see the absence of an actual mother figure in the Chu family as possibly causing this! her only male role mã sản phẩm is loving but distant khổng lồ her & her sisters. She has a standoff-ish relationship with her immediate family as talked about above; her sisters could have helped her navigate this situation she finds herself in better had there been better communication in the family, especially since her future was drastically changed by what happened to lớn her.Mr Chu"s oldest daughter Jia-Jen (Kuei-Mei Yang) is a rather interesting member of the family. After supposedly being spurned by a college sweetheart, she neither dates men or has much to vì with the rest of her family, yet she plans lớn take care of her father after the other girls leave home. I personally see this happening after her mother dies, và this untimely death also alienates her from her sisters as well.As in other typical Ang Lee movie, one of the several "twists" in this movie involves the oldest daughter meeting a love interest & changing her future plans tremendously!Mr. Chu"s business associate Old Wen taught Chu"s middle daughter Jia-Chien (Chien-Lien Wu) how khổng lồ cook while waiting for her father to finish his shift at the restaurant where he worked, but Mr Chu refuses lớn let his daughter cook for the family, forcing his daughter to lớn choose a career the airline industry instead. I see Mr Chu"s reluctance to lớn allow his daughters to lớn cook for the family both as a way of still being a parent to lớn them, but I also see it as a unwillingness khổng lồ let them "go", spread their wings, sort of. I don"t think he is doing this out of spite; I believe that with his wife still alive, he would have allowed them more leeway in their personal lives.I know most young girls take over occasional meals with their families; this gives them experience receiving criticism from people who can criticize their culinary skills in a loving way before they leave their home.I think maybe her looking so much lượt thích her mother may have something to vì chưng with Mr. Chu"s reluctance lớn his middle daughter taking on the role of the family chef. In my opinion, this is cause for some of the consternation between the two of them.She also finds out about the truth of her oldest sister"s reason for not dating for several years, but this "discovery" is never brought up again in this movie ; sadly, this is one of the dangling items left unanswered by Ang Lee in this movie!The middle daughter has a sudden, nasty change in her plans of being the first one to lớn move out; personally I think that Mr Chu is more than happy with what happens lớn her plans.In one of the last "twists" in this movie, Mr. Chu, after befriending the grand-daughter of a older woman he knows (who own mother recently returns from the States) and the grandmother of the little girl; he surprises all his daughters và their new families with a major announcement at one of his Sunday dinners; which affects the plans of his middle daughter tremendously, who by now has decided khổng lồ forgo her ambitions in the airline industry and remain to take care of her father for the rest of his life at her parental home! Finally at the last scene of the movie, Mr. Chu and his middle daughter discover a miracle of sorts that lets everyone know that entire family will live happily ever after! I can see the psycho-somatic implications of this by Ang Lee; he must have researched this very well before using it!Even though this is a great movie, i would have liked khổng lồ have seen a drama series, where the backgrounds of the different family members could have been more developed so that we could feel more empathy for them! It would have also answered some of the unanswered question that Ang Lee never took care of!The music was sublime và the cinematography, being a Ang Lee movie, was just perfect for the what was said & done, with the sets of the movie other than Mr. Chu"s house, the primary location the entire time, being appropriate and sufficient for making the movie seem real.All the main and tư vấn cast did an excellent job of portraying their individual roles and adding to lớn the realism of this Ang Lee movie! Special kudos to lớn Madame Liang (Gui Ya Lei) who added a special comical relief where placed by Ang Lee; I especially loved her reaction to lớn Mr. Chu"s special announcement at the last meal attended by all of the daughters và their families in the movie! This and the other movies in this trilogy are available online for free; & each movie may be viewed as an individual movie without watching the entire three-movie set. The three-volumes set is also available lớn watch together in one location if you look hard enough online.This is a full box of Kleenex movie: half for your tears at the sad parts & the other half khổng lồ stuff in your mouth during the other scenes, lượt thích during the last meal announcement with all the family present; you may disturb your neighbors if you don"t by laughing too loud! RE-WATCH VALUE: Definitely, especially if you are an optimist on life!
