Hanamuko no negoto #

Released 1/13/1935

Description: This pair of gentle yet witty and inventive comedies from the director of The Neighbour's Wife and Mine typify both the formal experimentation of early Japanese sound cinema and the social milieux that Shochiku tended to depict. 'Virtually plotless, and feeling more like comic sketches than totally developed stories,' writes Arthur Nolletti, Jr, 'these light comedies, or farces, take a wholly trivial matter (often a socially embarrassing situation) and test it as a springboard for a succession of gags.' Much of the films' distinction comes from the wit of Gosho's direction, the imaginative test of the fresh sound technology and the charm of the acting, particularly of the heroines (Kinuyo Tanaka in Bride; Hiroko Kawasaki in Groom). Yet in both films, Gosho finds room for some shrewd observation of hero and environment, subtly exploring the values and assumptions of the suburban petit bourgeoisie.

Dim Sum Funeral Reviews:

i came into this film not really expecting much probably because I've seen a lot of Asian American movies that ended up disappointing. that wasn't to be the situation this time. dim sum funeral has a lot of items going for it. i found the family interactions cute believable and universal (im Chinese American btw), the storyline had many plot lines and while yes, it should receive somewhat episodic, there are now many Hollywood films that fall into this structure too and that's the nature of life, isn't it? throughout the movie, i was cute entertained and didn't look at the time and felt myself caring for the characters which is the best compliment one can pay a story. i also absolutely loved the music. the easy piano melody really reminded me of the east Asian aesthetic in movies and the movie became "more Asian" as a result. also, it gave the film a ethereal and fleeting quality excellent for a film about death and life. and i don't know how they got her but talia shire is unbelievable in the film. it's really nice to see her back and it was fun looking to see if the actors would be intimidated by her stature which they weren't. really, all the main characters and even bai ling which i normally cant stand do quite admirably.all in all, dim sum funeral was a very nice, elegant and heartfelt surprise and i suggest it. 8 out of 10.


The lesbian actress Meimei (Steph Song), the doctor Alexander (Russell Wong), the true state agent Elizabeth (Julia Nickson) and the journalist Victoria (Françoise Yip) are contacted by Viola (Talia Shire) that says that their mother Ms. Lingy "Lynda" Xiao (Lisa Lu) had died. The Chinese-American siblings head to Seattle with their families where their mother's assistant Viola says that her last want was a seven-day Chinese funeral with her dysfunctional family. Meanwhile, the stranger pianist and Tai Chi Chun follower Chow Lin (Chang Tseng) arrives from Beijing for the funeral. Along the next days, Meimei and her partner Dede Chan (Bai Ling) test to receive sperm from the monk Bruce (Curtis Lum), and Viola delivers a letter from her mother saying the truth about her father. Alex tries to reconcile with his wife and former Miss Taiwan Cindy (Kelly Hu). Liz still grieves the loss of her son Sammy and is not ready to return to her husband Michael (Adrian Hough). On the sixth day of the funeral, the siblings have a large surprise."Dim Sun Funeral" has a potential storyline about a dysfunctional family with estranged siblings, loss of traditions, bitterness and reconciliation with many wealthy characters. Unfortunately the director Anna Chi makes a terrible work and the plot becomes a melodramatic and sometimes boring Chinese-American soap opera, lost between the comedy and the massive drama. Anyway, there are many interesting values and traditions from the Chinese culture and it is worthwhile watching this film at least once. My vote is six.Title (Brazil): "Meu Último Desejo" ("My Last Wish")


First of all, allow me start by telling that I am appalled by critic reviews of this movie. Describing the movie as 'predictable' and involving a 'typical Chinese-American family' is an insult to the cast and crew. There is nothing typical about this Chinese-American family. Seeing as how many movie critics are introverted white Americans, it is simple for them to forget that these folks have very various values than another Americans. To be able to critique this film fairly, you gotta know a nice deal about Asian culture on the whole. The 'predictable' twists that occur may be typical of your average American family--but in Asian families, it is more of a rarity.Needless to say, I was quite surprised at some of the revelations the kids had about their deceased mother, especially considering the fact she was born and raised in China. These revelations give a more human feel to the rigid culture of the Chinese, and give the film substance.Asian intolerance of infidelity, interracial marriage, and homosexuality is also explored in depth. This part of the film personifies the characters before they even speak more than a several lines, and supports humanize the 'Dragon Lady' over the course of the movie. There is much more that I should tell about this movie, but I trust I've told enough to offer a conclusion: As Americans, we don't generally place much thought into concepts like homosexuality, interracial marriage, and infidelity. Its all around us--and we become numb to it. But these concepts can become catalysts for mayhem in Asian families, where such concepts are shunned or outright forbidden. Understanding this fact will support you understand--and enjoy--the movie.
