Eat Drink Man Woman

Eat Drink Man Woman (IMDB) is a great film that is a must-see and a must-eat-during.

The film follows the lives of three women and their aging (but no where near aged) father living in Taiwan. The opening sequence should make you hungry, as during the opening credits Chu (played by Sihung Lung) is preparing a Sunday meal for 20 that he and his three daughters never seem to get around to eating.

Like all good films about food, this one is as much about the quality of ingredients that go into a tasty dish, as the quality of experiences we share with the people we love. During his final speech, Chu waxes on this topic noting that unlike cooking you cannot wait for all the ingredients to be in place for the relationship to begin.

I highly recommend just buying the DVD because you will want to watch this movie many times. As much for the sweet and sour goodness from the food, as for many of the sweet and tender scenes between these fine actors. Especially the final scene between Chu and his eldest daughter Jai-Chen (Chien-lien Wu), as the two finally come to terms with each other and you are taken all too soon to the end credits.
