Review

the rush and pull between the bonds of blood and the ties of lifestyle are explored with a light contact and a perceptive eye for detail on this pleasant, semi-autobiographical circle of relatives drama from author and director lulu wang. chinese language american billi (awkwafina, constructing on her zesty comic flip in loopy wealthy asians) has a foot in each of the two countries. wang introduces the concept with the identical deft writing and wry perception that characterise the film in its entirety. billi walks via the streets of new york speakme on the smartphone in the respectful chinese of a dutiful granddaughter to her cherished nai nai (zhao shuzhen). “sure, i’m sporting a hat,” she reassures nai nai (she isn’t). then she resultseasily switches personas and languages to banter in american-accented english with a canvasser on the street.

the yankee tendency to freely proportion mind and feelings collides with the chinese manner of parcelling up emotions. the 2 identities co-exist in billi, until the moment that she learns that nai nai has been recognized with terminal most cancers and that her own family have determined to preserve the information from the elderly woman. “chinese human beings have a announcing: while human beings get cancer, they die,” says billi’s mom (diana lin). “but it’s no longer the most cancers that kills them, it’s the fear.” billi disagrees, arguing that nai nai ought to have the risk to confront her destiny.

a rapidly convened wedding ceremony presents the quilt tale to bring the prolonged own family returned to china to bid farewell to their unwitting matriarch. cut-away photographs of the shellshocked satisfied couple, billi’s cousin and his eastern girlfriend, steamrollered into marriage after three months of diffident dating, are many of the many sly comedian asides that punctuate this poignant story.

as proficient a creator as she is at developing playful, visually layered frames, wang is continuously juggling clashes – of cultures, of tragedy and joy. i in particular loved a heart-to-heart conversation between billi and nai nai, which plays out against the backdrop of the quickly-to-be married couple posing for wedding ceremony pics wearing panicked, firing-squad grimaces. in the end, it’s all approximately balance, a yin and yang of roots and identities, humour and pathos that comes collectively into a satisfying, bittersweet wedding feast of a movie.
