Fine family entertainment, especially for softies.
In a rare opportunity for the entire family to spend the first time together in a long while, a grandmother, her two daughters, joined by their families, take a motor home trip in the Rockies. This wizened Chinese grandmother (played by Tsai Chin, who was the original Suzy Wong in the London West End world premiere of "The World Of Suzy Wong"), is replete with the calming influences of eastern meditative arts and cleverly finds subtle ways to get through to her feuding Chinese-American daughters, even when counsel and reprimand fail. This film, which received positive reviews at the film festivals, is rich with inspiring open country cinematography and an abundance of running waters. The scenes of this comedy/drama are pleasantly enhanced with a moving sound track. The movie subtly ends the same way it begins, with Grandma performing her beloved Tai Chi. Only this time she is doing it with her daughters.
