Combination Platter

Movie Summary

Director:
Tony Chan
Released:
1993
Rating:
Not Available
Combination Platter comes from the directorial debut of 23-year-old Tony Chan. He is a Hong Kong 'migr', Chan draws from his own experiences in detailing the tribulations of illegal immigrant Robert (Jeff Lau), who gets hired for a low-paying job at a Szechuan restaurant in New York. Robert would like to attain U.S. citizenship and has been told that this will be possible if he marries a girl with American citizenship. Frightened at this prospect, especially since it will set him back 25,000 dollars, even so Robert scurries about to "Americanize" himself in as short a time as possible. The plot is secondary to the film's atmosphere and mood: the dialogue flows so naturally from the restaurant's patrons and employees that one is hard pressed to believe that this was not improv, but a written script.
