Ang Lee's feature debut explores cross-cultural and generational conflicts, issues that would become the backbone of his work. This is the first in what can be described as Father Knows Best trilogy, tales about a parent confronting a changing world.
Audience Reviews for Tui shou (Pushing Hands)
Ang Lee's debut film and he only got better.
Absolutely powerful film, using 3 different perspectives to look at a family of mixed race. The storyline is about immigration and culture recognition, it's darkly humorous and yet tragic. The actors didn't have any acting experience which made the film even more natural and realistic.
Early Ang Lee drama about the problems of cross-cultural family expectations and responsibilities wth a Chinese father coming over to live with his son and reluctant American daugher in law. Dated but interesting.
