Film #29 of the "Scavenger Hunt" Challenge!
Task #24 : An LGBT genre film!
Two gay men in a loving relationship and living together have to deal with the Taiwanese parents of Wai-Tung! The parents haven't even the slightest clue that their son is gay become annoyingly insistent and overbearing when it comes to finding him a bride!
Like a slice of life the film showcases both the lighter and darker side of any given moment in life! The comedy is not over the top, and is often generally quite fun and even moving! While it does take a serious turn that could have very well deflated all the goodwill it had worked so hard to earn! Thankfully director Ang Lee had mad skills and more importantly great finesse!
A thoroughly enjoyable affair! A character driven film that put only the best behind the steering wheel guaranteeing a most delightful movie going experience!
