Overview of the elements of the film that appealed to me
This film was funny and touching at times. I thought the actors and actresses captured the essence of the ethnic characters they were portraying and the social condition they were living in very well. It captured the difficulty that many people face when opening up and talking about really personal emotions because there is that fear that the other person will change how they feel about you. It showed that beneath the shallow appearance of everyday life, deeper themes are at work. In a way, this film is in the early stages of a trend that picked up pace dramatically through the 1990s and so one can look back on it as one of the precursor "coming out" films that undoubtedly inspired some people in a positive way.
