Eat Drink Man Woman Movie Review

lee film lung ang

This mouth-watering film by Ang Lee shows a great chef (Sihung Lung as Chu) at work making superb meals every Sunday for his three daughters (a teacher, an executive, and a clerk at Wendy's). Since he IS their father, he is filled with opinions about what his grown children (who still live with him) should do with their lives. Lung, Ah-Leh Gua, and Winston Chao also starred in Ang Lee's The Wedding Banquet the previous year. An absolutely scrumptious date movie, but eat FIRST!
