Snow Flower and the Secret Fan Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: From the director of The Joy Luck Club, and based on the best-selling novel, comes a timeless portrait of female friendship. Centuries ago, two “sworn sisters” are isolated by their families, but stay connected through a secret language written in the folds of a white silk fan. Now in modern-day Shanghai, their descendents must draw inspiration from the past as they struggle to maintain their own eternal bond in the face of life’s complications. What unfolds are two stories, generations apart, but everlasting in their universal notion of love, hope and friendship

Review: This film holds a lot of similarity to Memoirs of a Geisha in that those that have read the book tend to dislike the film.  I personally had that issue with Geisha, but not with this one!  I felt that the film was very well-made and was true enough to the original subject matter to still work.  There are also similarities that can be drawn to the film Julie and Julia in that the film flips between past and present day.  The focus of this film is on sisters and relationships.  The film is dramatic, soft and absolutely touching.  Its a great watch for men and women alike and would be a perfect one to watch with your loved ones.

Interest Range: Drama, Historical
