Before his international success and Oscar wins for 'Brokeback Mountain' and 'Life of Pi' Ang Lee ('Gemini Man') gathered the family for an epic feast in the 1994 masterpiece 'Eat Drink Man Woman'- a wonderful double bill alongside brand new indie hit 'The Farewell' (now showing in our cinemas).
This Oscar- and BAFTA-nominated film is a celebration of love, life and cuisine. Just make sure to eat before you start watching!
Mr. Chu is an acclaimed chef at a top restaurant in Taiwan. But he has a problem – he’s lost his sense of taste. And it might be linked to a deeper, emotional problem. At the same time, he has to contend with his three grown daughters, strong-minded, strong-willed and each believing they know what’s best for him. Only Jin-Rong, a friendly neighbour, seems to really know how to help, but will it bring his taste back?
★★★★ "A startlingly superior piece of craftsmanship" - Angie Errigo, Empire
