Eat Drink Man Woman

In a funny way, this movie felt like home. It's Taiwanese, of course.

My mouth watered and my heart ached. I laughed, and I hmmmm'd, and I was half-distracted wondering throughout why that land/culture is so close to my heart.

I'm not sure whether or not to recommend this movie to anyone else, because I feel like my own opinion and viewing-experience was so clouded by nostalgia! But apparently, it was nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar in 1994, if that means anything to you.

Hi Sarah,

Just getting some of your recommendations since I'm in the mood for some good, NOT your-run-of-the-mill-Hollywood, movies.

We watched a good one last night. "Flash of Genius". I love movies based on real life. Not all happy, but very interesting, entertaining, thought-provoking, etc.
