The central character isn't complex enough to hold our interest.
Call it magic realism or surrealism, but Miss Wonton floats beyond reality with a certain degree of wit and dignity.
Suggests puns about ingredients and soup and somebody being off their noodle, but let's just say the ingredients don't quite add up to a meal.
A baffling mixed platter of gritty realism and magic realism with a hard-to-swallow premise.
Ong chooses to present Ah Na's life as a slight, weightless fairy tale, whose most unpleasant details seem to melt away in the face of the character's blank-faced optimism.
The movie barely makes sense, with its unbelievable naïveté and arbitrary flashbacks.
Its story about a young Chinese woman, Ah Na, who has come to New York City to replace past tragedy with the American Dream is one that any art-house moviegoer is likely to find compelling.
Ong's promising debut is a warm and well-told tale of one recent Chinese immigrant's experiences in New York City.
Most consumers of lo mein and General Tso's chicken barely give a thought to the folks who prepare and deliver it, so, hopefully, this film will attach a human face to all those little steaming cartons.
