Glad I saw it
MY RICE NOODLE SHOP is the story of Mainland China refugees surviving none too happily in Taiwan after their country's revolution. One of them runs a rice noodle shop, where three of her fellow emigrants feed like desert animals drinking from the last puddle of the rainy season. Epic flashbacks of their dignified pasts are contrasted with the cramped 'messy hell' of their present.

It's been some two years since I saw this movie; to my memory it has an enchanting performance by Carol Cheng as the embittered shop owner, some lovely, stately photography, and an episodic but compelling plot, told with such sympathy that some of its sad scenes are queerly uplifting.
