Ang Lee's "Eat, Drink, Man, Woman" (contributor post)

Julie, from Greece, writes this about the movie Eat, Drink, Man, Woman, (directed by Ang Lee, filmed in Tawain, and released in 1994):

In the interview included with the DVD, Ang Lee described his desire to use sumptuous scenes of food preparation to capture the imagination of his audience,  the same way sex is typically used in film.  Scenes like the opening one (below), are dispersed throughout the film, and are the most stunning food scenes I think I've ever seen.
