Storyline

A lonely middle-aged woman dines alone in a Chinese restaurant on her birthday. She pays close attention to the other patrons, imagining their relationships and personal situations. She remembers her past lovers and child, and broods on her bitter sense of loss and loneliness. In an unthinking moment, she announces to the waitress that it is her birthday, and the entire social dynamic in the restaurant is altered. An intensely moving, bittersweet and realistic look at emotional loss and disconnection. Written by stevergy2000@yahoo.com

Eye-opener on private prejudices
20 September 2003 | by bobsmitSee all my reviews

A woman in a Chinese restaurant has her own thoughts on each and every person in the restaurant and jumps to conclusions.

You tend to fully agree with her conclusions, but they are all wrong. As soon as this becomes clear, a new visitor enters, having another totally different opinion about all present people.
