When love from outside interferes in their lives they do not know what to do and how to support their used way of living. There are so many emotional points and themes covered in this film that every viewer finds his own tunes of soul, which are harmoniously repeated by the director. Sihung Lung takes care about his daughters and the audience feels a great sympathy to this caring man. He knows that his family is tearing apart, and being a head of the family, he tries to put the family together.

Traditional form of Chinese family To express a father’s love through cooking is an unusual form of feelings’ expression, because in the Chinese family a father plays a role of emotionally stable and a strong brave man, a head of the family. The situation is different in the film, because the father does not have his wife, he is a master chef and he has no son, but only three daughters. Communication in the family is mediated by means of culinary arts of the father. In such a way the director of the film expressed his unusual vision of an ideal Chinese family. Nevertheless, there is an evident emotional gap and a conflict of generations cannot be resolved by means of keeping silence only. The daughters and the father are united by invented family values.
