If you can get into a dialogue driven drama with many genuinely funny moments and a cast and writing that makes the family feel like family, this is a movie you will love.
I don't cry easily but this definitely made me cry and laugh
A funny, emotionally intricate and deeply moving tale of severed connections and renewed family ties.
The subject matter is inevitably somber, but the picture is also mischievously funny. Wang pirouettes along some tonal hairpins — in one scene, I guffawed in the midst of wracking sobs.
Wang shows an assured grasp of tone, a pleasing eye for unforced composition and a persuasive understanding of the immigrant cultural experience, with its sometimes difficult balance of tradition and modernity.
