Storyline

Sam Wong, the owner of a Chinese restaurant in London's Chinatown, dies in a phone booth. As a favor to her uncle, a young law student, Elaine Choy, agrees to probate Sam's will, but finds that the task is less than trivial. Sam's wife, daughter, son-in-law, cook, and two sons disagree on who should have which parts of the business. And two other beneficiaries remain frustratingly elusive. But in the search, Elaine and Sam's younger son, Mike, a restaurant owner himself, realize that they're not only exploring Sam Wong's life, but also their own cultural identities as both English and Chinese. Written by Kathy Li

Lucy Sheen carries the film.
14 May 2001 | by RINGO12147See all my reviews

I found Ping Pong to be an attention grabber mostly because I like Lucy Sheen. If not for Lucy this would be a good movie but maybe not one I would include in my personal collection as I have done. I give this opinion because the film does tend to be a bit ethnic. Hence it might interest a specific audience but not everyone. Ms. Sheen is perfect for he role as the lawyer because she is attractive and talented. The actual story line might appeal to a somewhat limited audience. However a beautiful lady like Ms.Sheen appeals to a lot of viewers! I would tell people interested in Asian cinema to see this British movie too!
