Both sweeping and intimate, a lovely evocation of changing cultures and enduring family ties.
Four different actresses play the aunties in their youth, which sometimes keeps us struggling to keep the stories straight. That we do is a tribute to the power of Tan's theme about the miscommunication that separates one generation from another.
It's ravishing to look it, a truly gorgeous object. But it is not deep.
One of the most touching and moving of the year's films.
Gives refreshing -- and bittersweet -- dimension to the age-old clash between generations.
It's fascinating and satisfying the way the diverse threads are knitted together into a single tapestry.
The Joy Luck Club opens up a panorama of women's worlds.
The masterful storytelling of the eight women in The Joy Luck Club, illuminated by each actress's elegant portrayal, make the film as resonating today as it did when it first hit theaters nearly eighteen years ago.
If you can get past the the pacing, the length, and the occasional melodrama, "The Joy Luck Club" rewards on two levels: as a look at Asian-American and Asian culture, and as a consideration of the dynamics that shape mother-daughter relationships.
Poignant tale of Chinese-American moms, daughters.
...not only fails to give the novel cinematic stature; it denigrates the delicate beauty of the book itself.
Well mounted adaptation of best seller.
A very long movie about 4 Chinese Women, one who is dead and the other 3 who were best friends, also stories about each one's daughters telling of events in there lives and there daughters. It's enjoyable and interesting. 4 Stars
Brilliant ensemble cast with seamless representation of intertwining stories. I know that as a Chinese-American, I should find these stories identifiable - and I do to some extent - but I also think they end melodramatically for a happy effect. I don't share the same catharsis.
Based on the novel by Amy Tan, about four elderly Chinese women who left China for America and their relationships with their American born daughters. Each relationship is strained because of the hardships that each mother had endured. How come Andrew McCarthy never ages?
This is a great film that takes you into the lives of these women. Each story is different. I love it!!! Mothers and daughters...watch it together!!!
