Red Doors

Georgia Lee makes her writing and directing debut with this predictable but sincere 2005 comedy about the trials of a suburban Chinese-American family. The mother and three daughters, preoccupied with their busy lives, fail to comprehend the deepening depression of the recently retired father (a deadpan Tzi Ma). Unwilling to seek professional help and consoled only by old videos of his daughters, he makes several feeble attempts at suicide and contemplates entering a Buddhist monastery. Lee suggests that Asians sacrifice family to assimilate into American culture, hardly an original notion but one conveyed here with humor and plangency. 90 min.
