| I've Actually Seen This Movie
My parents actually did this quite a few times: they would take me, as a pre-teen, to these Chinese movies playing in Chinese movie theaters in the Monterey Park region of southern California. This one I particularly remember because there was a hit Chinese song that came from this movie, and I learned to play it on the piano. All of my parents' friends knew the song and the movie it came from anytime I played it for them. In any case, it's a sad drama about the end of the career of a Chinese madame, and her reflections on her past. I found it slow and somewhat depressing at the time. My father now tells me that the movie's late director was one of Taiwan's biggest directors at the time. I actually wonder if I can find this movie on tape, just to see it again from a fresh, adult perspective.
