One of them, Suyuan, has died, and her daughter June is preparing to go to China. Auntie Lindo with daughter Waverly, Auntie Ying Ying with daughter Lena, and Auntie An Mei with daughter Rose are at the going away party. Born in China, the Joy Luck Club members came to America as young adults; their daughters are 100% American. The old days are seldom spoken about, and some things about those times have never been said aloud, but the experiences left behind color the hopes and expectations these women have for their daughters. If daughters become their mothers--no matter how much both parties desire that it not happen--daughters also become different from their mothers--despite all attempts to perpetuate the status quo

Töchter des Himmels( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vier vor langer Zeit in die USA emigrierte Chinesinnen erinnern sich der Umstände, unter denen sie ihre Heimat verlassen mußten: Repressionen einer im Untergang befindlichen Feudalherrschaft, Krieg, Flüchtlingselend und Tod. Ihre Erinnerungen drängen angesichts von Konflikten mit ihren in den USA geborenen Töchtern nach oben. Die jungen Frauen lernen allmählich, ihre Mütter zu verstehen, und erfahren zugleich etwas, das auch für ihr Leben entscheidend wird. Eine ausufernd breit entwickelte Bestseller-Verfilmung. Die populäre, gelegentlich (über- )konstruierte Erzählstruktur ist Grundlage für ein berührendes Melodram, das von der heilenden Kraft der Liebe und des Verstehens handelt und von der Hoffnung auf eine Verständigung über Generationen und Grenzen hinweg.

Ein Werbemanager kehrt nach einer zufälligen Liebesnacht in die Arme seiner Gattin zurück. Als er die Frau, die er nicht vergessen kann, ein Jahr später am Sterbebett eines Freundes wiedertrifft, beginnen die Komplikationen. Auch sie ist verheiratet. Eine außergewöhnliche Liebesgeschichte vom Chaos der Gefühle. Ein behutsamer und zärtlicher Film über den Zufall, die Liebe und den Tod. (M.K.) Weil er ein Flugzeug verpaßt, trifft ein Mann eine Frau und verbringt eine Nacht mit ihr. Die zwei - beide verheiratet - treffen sich ein Jahr später zufälligerweise am Sterbebett eines Freundes wieder und finden zueinander. Der auf Hochglanz polierte, sorgfältig gemachte Film ist beachtenswert, weil er eine Liebe zwischen Schwarz und Weiß ebenso selbstverständlich zeigt wie das Sterben eines Aids-Kranken. Durch das Abdriften in banale Lösungen vermag er allerdings nicht zu überzeugen. (Zoom, 10/97) (...) Regisseur und Autor Mike Figgis ist ein Spezialist für Grenzgänge(r) und konsequente Gefühle. Virtuos spielt er, auch als Komponist, auf der Klaviatur der Leidenschaften und ihrer Zwischentöne. Daß in dieser Edel-Romanze auch kräftig-ironischer Stadtneurotiker-Humor mitswingt, macht sie besonders erlebenswert. (Angie Dullinger, AZ, 25.9.1997) (...) Musik, Skript, Dreharbeiten, Schnitt - alles gehört zu einem Gesamtkonzept. Aber Musik ist die Psychologie, das Herz eines jeden Films, sie vermittelt die Gefühle, rührt unser Innerstes. "One Night Stand" habe ich wie ein Musical konzipiert.
