The cult classic
14 August 2010 | by (Deutschland) – See all my reviews

"The Teahouse' stars the amazing & legendary Chen Kuan Tai, portraying a decent man in a land of criminals and dishonor! Cheng Wang, a refugee, owns a neighborhood Teahouse/restaurant that he obtained through hard work as a street vendor. his restaurant seems to be in the middle of a modern day war zone, with teenage thugs committing robberies, rape, and assaults right outside his door. Cheng quickly becomes the hero of this city, when he and his 'family' of workers stand up against the thugs, and the faulty justice system, through a series of vigilante attacks on the people that hurt his own. Formuliac and simplistic, but the presence of Chen Kuan Tai, as well as some beautiful camera-work, and dedicated performances, make this one worthy of it's cult status. although there are some nasty scenes, it should be known that, while Chen kuan Tai is a renowned kung fu master, there is no kung fu in this film, which plays as a straight crime drama. I was disappointed that Chen's unique "monkey claw" style kung fu was not on display here, but this remains a fine film all the same. Featuring some powerful dramatic scenes, and the best thing about "Tea House" is the way the employees form their own family, and learn to love their boss, who becomes a hero to them all. A standout scene features 'brother Cheng' taking in two young beggar children, and feeding them in his restaurant. There is even a nice romantic side story. "The Teahouse" is a must-see for fans of Chen Kuan Tai. If you can find this rare title, i recommend seeing it. followed by a sequel titled "Big Brother Cheng."
