Pretty Wonderful
1 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Throughout this film, I was reminded of the film "Tokyo Story", in that it deals with how the changes in a child's life affects the parent(s). In this film, lensed in Taipei, the widowed father prepares Sunday dinner for his three daughters, all of whom experience life changes during the film. At first you do not like the eldest daughter, whose beauty reminds me a bit of the late, lamented Anita Mui, but she grows on you. What makes this film a delight is that during the film, as the story unfolds, you want to see something good happen to all of them. That is truly the mark of a well made film. The film has a richness that keeps you interested. In terms of scope, I also liken this film to the wonderful "YI YI". Not to be missed.
