Director Ang Lee's Eat Drink Man Woman follows the story of Chu, a Chinese chef, and his three daughters.
Before Ang Lee won two Oscars for directing "Brokeback Mountain" and "Life of Pi," before he wowed audiences with "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," he wrote and directed "Eat Drink Man Woman," a very personal story about Chu, a Chinese chef, and his three daughters. Beginning and ending with the massive Sunday dinner that Chu prepares every week, this touching family drama about aging, death and the prickly relationship between old-fashioned fathers and their more modern daughters takes some surprising turns in between those two incredible meals. Told with a delicate and wry touch, "Eat Drink Man Woman" is a beautifully expressed, universal story of family and food that was Oscar-nominated in 1995 for Best Foreign Language Film.
