喜宴 | The Wedding Banquet

The Wedding Banquet

A pair of Chinese-Caucasian gay couple, two Taiwan traditional parents and a girl who is willing to have a deceiving marriage for a green card have joined together and become a story full of love and sensibility. Director Ang Lee has entwined all the controversial issues of that time in a realistic and spontaneous way, which has probed into the issues like clashes between a grow-in-the-west son and the Chinese’s desire to look for freedom at all cost. Starting with all the dilemmas and ending with their unspoken compromises, the love and understanding among the family has been impenetrated throughout the movie, wich has shown the excellent filming technique of Director Ang Lee.

Directed by Ang Lee | Starring : Winston Chao, Ya-lei Kuei, Sihung Lung, May Chin, Mitchell Lichtenstein | Presented at Berlin Film Festival, Seattle Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival
