Motherland doesn't fully succeed on any of its levels. But Doris Yeung's subtle and intelligent debut feature contains enough interesting elements to mark the filmmaker as someone to watch.

Besides its requisite thrills, the Asian-American experience has rarely been better captured than in this taut, sensitively drawn murder mystery.

Francoise Yip is stunning and steel-willed as a take charge, not taking no for an answer, tough-talking sleuth. While subverting any vestiges of the meek China Doll mystique, in this too true for comfort crime thriller.

Yeung tries to mix a whodunit with a story of explosive family dynamics, but the effort succumbs to a weak script and a one-note lead performance.

Plays like an artsy short stretched to 93 minutes.

Despite its ambitious combination of murder mystery and cautionary immigration tale, Motherland doesn't quite hold together, lacking both the fuel to reach a rolling, procedural boil and the intimacy to simmer with emotion.
