My Mother is a Belly Dancer Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In the tradition of Calendar Girls and The Full Monty, 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 (Kristal Tin), Mrs. Chan, (Amy Chum) 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 All About Love's screenwriter Lee Kung-lok. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
