I thought the storyline was very interesting and gave us a glimpse inside at what it was like for Asians in present business back in the fifties and sixties. Hollywood's attitude toward ethnic actors and actresses were a bit racist and stereotypical until a young actress called Nancy Kwan (whose Chinese name is Ka Shen) broke onto the stage and helped changed the views of many. Most noted for her performances in The Globe of Suzie Wong and Flower Drum Song, this documentary looks at Nancy Kwan's whole career and shows us a strong, determined girl who no matter what, everytime pushed forward and delivered her greatest even when what she had to work with was not very good. The storyline is solid and supports us connect by letting us in and seeing the private hardships she has endured. The movie is well shot with unbelievable out takes from the different film and tv performances that Nancy did over her career, as well as interviews with some of the folks that were closest to her. I also enjoyed listening to Nancy talk about her life and her thoughts about what she has been through. Many times documentaries like this are done after the person has passed away and we only hear opinions from others that knew them and what they think, so it was refreshing to hear her own accounts.My only criticism of the movie is about the constant cutting away to the scenes in the temple ruins. I felt this was method too repetitive, fully unnecessary and a bit distracting. It was almost like they were trying to stretch the movie length out and used those scenes to do it. If that was their target I think they should have found more constructive methods to do so. Another than that, I found To Whom It May Concern a very enjoyable and informative piece of work. I definitely suggest it, especially to those who are cinema history buffs.
The documentary "To Whom It May Concern: Ka Shen's Journey" follows Hollywood's postwar Asian superstar, Nancy Kwan. Kwan acts as tour tutorial around her private and professional history in the film. It details generous, but judicious test of clips from Kwan's career and the final scenes dwell on a family tragedy; The family tragedy has a nice message and is very moving, but eventually it throws the movie off-balance.In a mostly chronological account, Kwan acts as both interviewee and sometime-narrator. Kwan's Hollywood associates were interviewed mostly in Los Angeles, with family and childhood acquaintances in Hong Kong. For reasons that become more obvious soon on, many of the sessions with Kwan and third husband Norbert Meisel were conducted at the ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia.Trimming the movie would improve its appeal to a wider audience. Ka Shen's Adventure would fit better in an hour slot on PBS than on a full length DVD movie. In addition, the editing and quality of the movie was less than average. I understand that most of the movie is old reel footage, but the modern scenes did not look high definition. Furthermore, the transitions and font usage were over used and seemed a bit amateur.Overall, I would rate the movie a 7/10 for nice content, but, less than average technique.
