This is a nice story about a female Chinese chef working in Chinatown. Sadly, her father instead of being proud of her sublime cooking, gives credit for this to his two lazy sons. However, this ruse becomes very apparent when they have a special guest and the sons are unable to do anything but make fools of themselves.
This is a film sponsored by the National Film Board of Canada and is totally unlike anything else I have seen from this government agency. Now I must admit I have only seen about 100 of their films, so perhaps there are other films like it and director Yuan Zhang may eventually go on to make other fine animated films like this, though ROSES SING ON NEW SNOW is the only credit I could find on IMDb for Yuan.
The best thing about the story is the lovely animation. It is very finely detailed but also looked very much inspired by Chinese drawings--perfect for such a film. Combining this with excellent music and an inspiring story all worked together to make this lovely short film.
