This Month's Film: Farewell My Concubine
Cuisine: Chinese

Written by Lillian Lee and directed by Kaige Chen, Farewell My Concubine is a richly embroidered tapestry of Chinese history and culture that provides a context for a poignant triad in which the shifting interplay of psychodynamcis between the characters is the source of both pain and salvation.
