A remarkably assured comedy-drama of domestic life in Taiwan from Director - Ang Lee
Senior Master Chef Chu lives in a large house in Taipei with his three unmarried daughters, Jia-Jen, a chemistry teacher converted to Christianity, Jia-Chien, an airline executive, and Jia-Ning, a student who also works in a fast food restaurant. Life in the house revolves around the ritual of an elaborate dinner each Sunday, and the love lives of all the family members.
The movie's main appeal - beyond stomach yearnings caused by its cuisine - comes from the actors, who infuse their archetypal roles with comedic appeal
