    This movie wasn't exactly what I expected or wanted to see, but it was okay. You learn a lot about Chinese Americans, Chinatown, and culture clashes. I liked that part, and the little bits of humor strewn about. What I didn't like was the ending.

    reminded me a bit of the french new wave films of the 60s, 2 chinese men of diferent ages, find out there friend chan is missing, so they set off to track him down, sking various people wether they have anything. and what we get isnt a thriller of action, but a film that almost comes across documentery like in its aproach, and comments by people who knew chan, on how the chinese are treated and indeed in in america, there adopted country. a short film, of two men, learning and bickering, whilst they travel the city they live in searching for chan, a film to watch if you want 2 charactors having meaty conversations
