A bit too hammy at moments, Meditation Park is otherwise a complex film that hews with tenderness to Asian stereotypes in order to reflect back their often-obscured depths.
As such, Meditation Park holds an important zeitgeist of our time, well-worth the trip to catch it.
Meditation Park is mostly a complex and compassionate look at marriage, families, aging and the immigrant experience.
The movie only finds real, if tentative, happiness when it sticks with the timeworn woman and her empty bag.
[Cheng's] journey is perfectly balanced between tragedy and hope.
A tender, achingly tangible story about a woman's latent self-discovery, Meditation Park is a gem propelled by Cheng Pei Pei whose wildly expressive face fires emotion straight to the heart.
Shum has designed her film for general viewers, which means that coherence of tone and theme are less important than forcing in broad comedy and uplifting emotion
With warmth and humour, [Mina] Shum subtly addresses the trauma and isolation of the immigration experience, as well as the challenges faced by second generation immigrants because of their parents' lasting trauma.
[Writer/Director Mina] Shum mines her favourite theme - immigrant experience in Canada - in what seems at first to be a gentle slice of life but eventually develops a powerful emotional force.
