Enticing and absolutely delightful, this is an amazingly smart and fascinating movie about a Chinese man who, after the death of his wife, decides to travel to the United States in order to see his estranged daughter. In the end, their stories are intimately and irrevocably linked to the legacy of what they went through during the Cultural Revolution. Conversation with Yunte Huang, Professor of English, and director Wayne Wang following the screening. Wayne Wang, 83 min., Mandarin, Persian, and English, 2007, USA.
