Eat Drink Man Woman

Another food movie, this one Chinese, Eat Drink Man Woman.

An older chef is living at home with his three older daughters, each of whom are not exactly successful in the love life aspect. Over the movie, we see the ladies find various kinds of love, and it doesn't play out as most cliches would have you expect. Even the chef doesn't get sent down the obvious route (although his arc is somewhat more clearly signposted).

Good performances all around, and more than a few scenes of food preparation. (I do wonder if they got in actors who could cook... or, more simply, cut to hands doing things that belonged to actual chefs and editing kept tight.)

I've often heard of this movie, and it has a title that rolls off the tongue. I'm not sure that I would call it a comedy, per se, although it is light hearted.

Nice movie, well recommend.
