Directed and written by Ang Lee, Eat Drink Man Woman is a film about a family in Taipei and the surprises that life can bring. The lavish meals act as a conduit between father and daughters as he tries to reconnect with his family.

Eat Drink Man Woman, directed by the now-famous Ang Lee, is an ambitious comedy delves deeply into relationships and how they interact around food.

For me, it's a nearly perfect movie: some of the most satisfying cooking sequences out there pair with a sweet, poignant tale of a family changing as each daughter tries to find love. Don't watch it on an empty stomach!

EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN : just about perfect comedy/drama about a family only able to communicate through food. The food prep scenes--particularly the breathtaking extended opening sequence -- are absolutely unrivaled.

EDMW was deservedly nominated for both an academy award and golden globe for best foreign film.
