Lee’s gently comic family fable about a semi-retired master chef and his three daughters, the director’s only film shot entirely in his native Taiwan, is arguably the best movie about how food can connect generations ever made. The cooking scenes, rapturously shot by cinematographer Jon Lin, capture the magic, majesty, and diversity of Taiwanese cuisine, but it’s the quiet, world weary performance by Sihung Lung as the elder chef that gives the film its heart and soul. “Wonderfully seductive, and nicely knowing about all of its characters’ appetites.”—The New York Times
