Excellent Family Movie, Heartwarming, great story, and welldone!
I had the pleasure of watching this film during one of it's public screenings. I guess it screens for families at a school in my neigborhhod pretty frequently. A great idea since it's not a film that I have to feel dragged to for my daughter's sake. It really is a FAMILY FILM.
I brought my mother and my young daughter to the screening and all of us fell in love with it. And found ourselves laughing on the way out of the screening! Mostly because we could totally relate to the characters, who are similarly three generations of Chinese women.
The story is about three generations of one family who go on a vacation in a goofy trailer. Tsai Chin, who was Lindo in the Joy Luck Club, is just as hilarious and collected as she was in that movie as the mother who keeps everyone together. (My mother who doesn't understand that much English was saying after how she is so like her.) And my daughter feel in love with the actress who plays Kim Miyori's daughter.
The film is beautiful. The scenic shots are absolutely stunning.
There are wonderful shots of Taiwan and then beautiful sweeping shots of the campground where the finally park.
I think it is being distributed on video and will probably purchase a couple of copies for my family and one for my daughter's school.
Finally a women's movie, a family movie, and a fun movie-- all in one! Two thumbs up!
