Movie Info

With a marvelously convoluted plot and featuring plenty of slapstick action, Chinese Feast is essentially a kung-fu film with a tasty twist: the combatants battle with knives, not to carve each other up but to make exquisite culinary delicacies. The story's impetus comes from a long-standing feud between cooking schools and centers on an upcoming cook-off in which two master chefs compete to present the most delicious version of the Qing & Han Imperial Feast staples -- monkey brains, bear paw, … More

Audience Reviews for The Chinese Feast (Jin yu man tang)

Very cool 1995 effort from Tsui Hark. Leslie Cheung delivers an awesome performance, and the so, so, SO hot Anita Yuen has bright red/green punk rock hair! This is a movie where the food is just as much of a character as the actors- if that makes any sense. The prep scenes are beautiful, and manages to convey in a competitive sense what, say, a kung fu fight would in a Sammo film or shoot out would in a John Woo film. This is one of those movies that was made for people who just adore movies in general, not fans of a specific niche or genre. Recommended to anyone who loves movies.
