My Mother is a Belly Dancer Details


In the tradition of [[Feature~V286541~Calendar Girls~calendargirls]] and [[Feature~V158564~The Full Monty~thefullmonty]], a group of older Cantonese women are liberated when their original dance class is canceled and switched to belly dancing in the life-affirming comedy drama My Mother Is a Belly Dancer. The film focuses on Mrs. Wong ([[Performer~P303761~Kristal Tin~kristaltin]]), Mrs. Chan, ([[Performer~P508792~Amy Chum~amychum]]) and Mrs. Lee (Sydney), three ladies who find catharsis by performing a dance that most of their community considers lurid and uncivilized. The film was screened at the Rotterdam International Film Festival and was directed by 2005's [[Feature~V341288~All About Love~allaboutlove]]'s screenwriter [[Performer~P460229~Lee Kung-lok~leekunglok]]. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
