Eat Drink Man Woman
Before breaking into the ranks of indie uber-directors with Sense and Sensibility and The Ice Storm, Ang Lee produced a trio of films set in his native Taiwan. This is the third and best of them, featuring an amazing performance by Sihung Lung as a father trying to deal with his estranged daughters. While the film is a feast for the eyes and ears, it ultimately succeeds on the strength of its emotional heart.
