Catfish in Black Bean Sauce Reviews

    I really enjoyed this movie. I like the topic that it broaches, the tension between American Black and Asian culture, and I like the way it approaches that topic, a black couple from "da hood" adopts and does a fine job of raising 2 Asian children. I think this is a very worthwhile film that fell under the radar of too many.

    There is some good material here, and the tension between cultures analyzed here is one that is intriguing in that it often goes unconsidered. But, the script here is beyond unpolished. There are 50,000 subplots in the film, the vast majority of which are either unnecessary or unresolved at the conclusion. The lead romantic story is nothing but very awkward exchanges between actors that don't seem to click. Very jumbled.

    Although the dialogue is a bit stilted at times the story line is really interesting and entertaining.

    I love the message of this movie^_^ And how it shows that love has no colour. When you love someone it shouldnt matter what race they are or where they come from. This is one of my favourites.

    Buried in this is a nice little story about intermingling of cultures, but it rarely gets beyond the obvious cliches.
