5.0 out of 5 stars Rom-com with a twist, 22 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Touch Of Pink [DVD] (DVD)
I saw Touch of Pink at the Sundance film festival and again at London's Gay and Lesbian film festival and both times it kept the audiences happy and rolling with laughter at the one-liners.

I think it pulls it off as film that is charming and witty but one which is also very moving. While it plays like an old fashioned, feel-good Hollywood rom-com with a gay, Asian twist, the film also has a more serious side in dealing with internalised homophobia and racism. But it never comes across as heavy handed - it plays out its politics through humour. Suleka Matthew is beautiful and touching as the mother, and she shows that she's a very gifted comedian. Kyle MacLachlan is inspired his performance as Cary Grant, getting the vocal intonations and the mannerisms just right.

A must-see for fans of old Cary Grant movies - who will pick up all the reference to his film. Also for people interested in post-colonial cinema. Make a big bowl of popcorn, curl up on the sofa and enjoy watching it.
