Storyline

It's Sex and the City meets The Wedding Banquet for young San Franciscan Daniel Chang, living at home with his clueless, traditional mother. Desperate for a grandchild, she's eager to see him married and spends much of her time planning introductions to suitable Chinese girls for Daniel. But when she recruits a new lodger for the downstairs flat, Daniel finds himself falling for Robert, the hot Southern boy who's moved to the big city. Well, Robert's not a suitable Chinese girl - but is he gay? And does he feel the same way about Daniel? Daniel soon gets his chance to find out when the basement floods and his mother insists Daniel share his bedroom with Robert while the plumbers fix the mess downstairs...

Convincing and inspirational
15 June 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a young Chinese American who has to come out to his mum who holds traditional Chinese attitudes.

It approaches the traditional Chinese values of family and respect for elders in a touching way. I was particularly impressed by the scene where Daniel picks back up the torn dating leaflet after mum's simple sentence about dad. It illustrates how tradition imposes intense lock and chain on Chinese youngsters. Even more touching is the exchange of thoughts between the two mothers. It is almost inspirational, and I think all mothers in the situation should watch it for educational purposes. Daniel and Robert are so natural and passionate about each other that makes their relationship and the film even more convincing.
