subtle beauty by Fruit Chan again explores social transition
19 March 2003 | by (Logan, Australia) – See all my reviews

Durian Durian may be minimilistic in look but it's the low-key/frank element to Chan's films that recalls our own lives & intrigues the viewer, those small details that set us onto the path of growth & transition. Fruit Chan is the Ken Loach of Hong Kong/Chinese cinema, character development is the focus but underlying is an enlightening gaze at the struggle of individuals as China reverts to a Capitalist system, how progress vs. nostalgia work in tandem, both appealing & disappointing, yet ultimately it's about survival...how each concept has its moments. The recurrent motif of the Durian fruit proves to be both hilarious & stirring...a must see.
