The Joy Luck Club
Directed by: Wayne Wang
Produced by Ronald Bass, Amy Tan, Patrick Markey
based on the New York Times bestseller “The Joy Luck Club” by Amy Tan
Let me just say this is a film that is close to my heart, being Chinese and Filipino. The emotion and tension felt between the mothers and daughters in the film is as real as you can get if you look at most Chinese mother-daughter relationships.(pretty darn awkward indeed in my case)
I suggest if you haven’t read the book yet, to go out and read it, its whimsical and touching in a cultural way(specially if you know a bit of chinese). It is an excellent read.
