Stanley Kwan's "Full Moon In New York" is a tale of three very different Chinese women (a passive one from the mainland, an aspiring actress from Taiwan, and a pushy business woman from Hong Kong) living in New York City and their unlikely friendship. Kwan's direction of the terrific screenplay by Yan and Zhong is first-rate. The three leading ladies are all excellent, as is, I believe, Richard Hsiung (the credits are not clear), as Stchingowa's rich, uncomprehending husband. Search it out - a wonderful little film.
