The Joy Luck Club
The triumphant revival of 1920s fashion in China and the non-flowery comeback of 90s fashion. Thank god the costume dept did a nice job with the shoulder pads.
I have long been a fan of the Euro-Asian fusion and this movie caters to my exact taste. Seriously, who doesn’t love cheongsam with pearls.? I call that pure class.
Wonderful movie follows the lives of 2 generations from 2 different eras and in 2 different cultures. I must applaud the production team for the smooth transitioning between the storylines and this is made easier thanks to the accurate periodical costumes.
Sad note: This movie made me reconsider marriage. Really. It’s beautiful yet depressing at the same time…
