推手 Pushing Hands

Pushing Hands (Chinese: 推手; pinyin: tuī shǒu) is a film directed by Ang Lee. Released in 1992, it was his first feature film. Together with Ang Lee's two following films, The Wedding Banquet (1993) and Eat Drink Man Woman (1994), it forms his "Father Knows Best" trilogy, each of which deals with conflicts between an older and more traditional generation and their children as they confront a world of change.

The film was first released in Taiwan. After The Wedding Banquet and Eat Drink Man Woman became successful in the United States, Pushing Hands received a U.S. release.

Plot

The story is about an elderly Chinese t'ai chi ch'uan teacher and grandfather who emigrates from Beijing to live with his son, American daughter-in-law, and grandson in a New York City suburb. The grandfather is increasingly distanced from the family as a "fish out of water" in Western culture. The film shows the contrast between traditional Chinese ideas of Confucian relationships within a family and the much more informal Western emphasis on the individual. The friction in the family caused by these differing expectations eventually leads to the grandfather moving out of the family home (something very alien to traditional expectations), and in the process he learns lessons (some comical, some poignant) about how he must adapt to his new surroundings before he comes to terms with his new life.

《推手》(英文:Pushing Hands)是一部于1991年上映的台湾电影,由李安担任导演,以及由郎雄、王莱等主演。

电影上映前,因剧本获得台湾行政院新闻局颁赠40万新台币奖金,配合中央电影公司的支持下,让李安首度获得执导的机会。

台湾导演李安运用近代家庭变迁搭配细腻描述亲情互动,因而享誉国际的‘父亲三部曲’之第一部曲[4]。

Really a good movie, especially for those who move from one culture to another.

Thank you! I'm sure the people who are living overseas can get inspiration from the movie.
