An ageing martial artist and Tai Chi master moves from China to suburban New York to live with his son, his wife and their child. They struggle with adjustments, a language barrier, and family tensions as he forms his new life there. Looking at culture clashes, tradition and modernisation, this is sensitive, human and funny.
The first feature film from Ang Lee, and part of his trilogy including ‘The Wedding Banquet’ and ‘Eat Drink Man Woman’.
His later films include ‘Sense and Sensibility’, ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’, ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and ‘Life of Pi’.
Winner of best film at the Asia-Pacific film festival, the special jury award and acting prizes at the Golden Horse film festival in Taiwan.
