Directed by Wayne Wang | 1985

With Kim Chew, Laureen Chew, Victor Wong

Food—mouthwatering Cantonese delicacies to be precise—is at the center of this bittersweet ode to Chinese-American family, culture, and cuisine about the relationship between a 60-something widowed mother and the adult daughter she anxiously wishes to see married. Balancing understated humor with a tender melancholy, Wang creates both an engaging, slice-of-life character study and a poignant portrait of the gulf between generations.
