Woman Soup | Chicago Reader

Woman Soup

Four Taiwanese women approaching middle age commiserate over their man troubles at a communal bath. Director Emily Liu packs a variety of topical dilemmas into this pleasant if synthetic 1999 comedy: a TV host gets married and finds that her husband is jealous of her career; a sculptor has an affair with a married man; a housewife finds out her husband is gay; and an academic tries to lose her virginity. The girl talk is intelligent and risque, and the middlebrow seduction scenes are titillating enough to make up for the characters' luxurious disillusionment. With May Chin (The Wedding Banquet). 95 min.
