Eat Drink Man Woman (1994)

Directed by Ang Lee

Cast: Sihung Lung, Yu-Wen Wang, Jacqueline Wu Chien-Lien, Kuei-Mei Yang, Sylvia Chang, Winston Chao, Chao-jung Chen, Lester Chit-Man Chan, Yu Chen

Long before Brokeback Mountain, Chinese director Ang Lee was making films that explore traditional society's norms and depict how people break away from them. In Eat Drink Man Woman, Lee tells the story of a Taiwanese master chef and his three daughters, and how they transcend conventional Chinese thinking through their unusual love life’s. Using food as a metaphor, the movie excels in delivering a deeply philosophical message in a fairly simple manner.
