Dina Oh my, I cry buckets every time I watch this movie! Love it, love it, love it!

P.S.: You aren't excused, Jasmin. Chinese names are completely different one from another. ;)

Jasmin i ddnt know this has a movie.

forgive me D. I know their different, but my brain refuses to process it as different things. It only registers it as a general "Chinese name" XD

Dina Jasmin, you've got to rent the DVD! Have I told you how much I love the movie yet? LOL


message 4: by Jasmin (new)

Jasmin will do Dina. i think my brain works better with facial recognition. XD

Kat Kennedy I've seen the movie (and loved it) it's good to know the book is good too!

AH The interesting thing about this book is that you could almost put any immigrant group in the place of the Chinese experience. I am a child of immigrants and a lot of the experiences were similar. Amy Tan's other books were very good.

K.D. Absolutely I loved the movie of this though its all about women. Many years ago but I still remember their faces. They are right, go and see it.
Not planning to read the book though. I think the movie is enough. Normally, I read the book if there are somethings (like seemingly nice dialogues) that I could not understand in the movie. In the case of film adaptation of this book, everything is clear including the dialogues. But of course that was I think a couple of decades ago so I don't remember anything. ha ha

Amanda I loved the book, but I have to say the movie was so beautiful that it almost eclipses the book.


message 9: by Jasmin (new)

Jasmin thanks everyone! I'm going to make it a goal of mine to watch the movie. It seems really really good :)

Cynthia Paschen When I read this book I had a hard time keeping track of which mother went with which daughter. In the movie, it was obvious from the beginning. The movie is a total pleasure.

Regine In my case I actually liked the movie more than the book. The book is still good, but I felt that there was more emotion in the movie. If you haven't seen it yet, please do.
