Storyline

Red Doors tells the story of the Wongs, a bizarrely dysfunctional Chinese-American family living in the New York suburbs. Ed Wong has just retired and plots to escape his mundane life. However, the tumultuous, madcap lives of his three rebellious daughters change his plans. The eldest daughter, Samantha, is an ambitious businesswoman in Manhattan who suddenly gets cold feet about her upcoming marriage when she runs into an old high school flame. Julie, the shy middle sister, finds her life as a studious medical student turned upside down when she falls for a movie starlet visiting the hospital. Katie, the youngest sister, is a disaffected high school senior who engages in a continually escalating and dangerous prank war with her longtime neighbor and nemesis, Simon. Ultimately, Ed's disappearance compels each daughter to examine her own understanding of the role and connection she has to the family. At the same time, the Wongs learn to live their own lives outside the invisible fences... Written by Blanc de Chine

A must see
11 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An excellent examination of life from several unique points of view that have not been given this type of treatment before. One can tell if a film is relevant when everyone who sees it takes aways something different from what was apparent to them on the screen whether it be humorous or dramatic. The appreciation of this film will only be tempered by your own experiences. Watch this film more than once and watch the layers unfold. Nothing on the screen is superfluous. One of the most satisfying films I've seen this year.

One of my favorite scenes was when the white guy/boyfriend (which would be me in the same situation)is invited to dinner and the younger sister puts something in his bowl that startles him. The moment is very brief. I thought it was hysterical, from my point of view. However, my wife who is Chinese didn't even notice the moment until we discussed the movie later in the evening. She could only notice the decor, which she though was funnier. Both scenes had the same level of truth. This is why the film is a remarkable achievement.
