Durian, Durian (2000)

Summary: More than meets the eye
Bearing a name like Fruit Chan, it is only appropriate that Hong Kong's postcolonial master pull a movie about a fruit! Actually, there is a parallel that runs between the king of fruit and the Mainland-HK relationship and their people, which I belive Paul Fonoroff has summarized in his excellent review (see below).

As an immigrant, I found DURIAN DURIAN packed with subtle emotion. I love the ending so much, somehow touched by the forward tracking shot of the staged opera performance. I can't explain what it is about this shot that moves me; I think it must have illustrated a root in humanity. In any case, when such simplicity commits to memory, I know DURIAN DURIAN is special.
