Ang Lee's feature debut explores cross-cultural and generational conflicts, issues that would become the backbone of his work. This is the first in what can be described as Father Knows Best trilogy, tales about a parent confronting a changing world.

Early Ang Lee drama about the problems of cross-cultural family expectations and responsibilities wth a Chinese father coming over to live with his son and reluctant American daugher in law. Dated but interesting.

Absolutely powerful film, using 3 different perspectives to look at a family of mixed race. The storyline is about immigration and culture recognition, it's darkly humorous and yet tragic. The actors didn't have any acting experience which made the film even more natural and realistic.

Ang Lee's rarely known martial art film. Sihung Lung (Eat, Drink, Men, Women) acted as a tai-chi master working quietly in Chinese restaurant until he finally was forced to use his tai-chi. Unable to speak English yet always understand the heart of men. Several culture clash created some comical moments that's true in its own sense. The ending was shocking and touching at the same time.
