This beguiling tale of a middle-aged man who’s lost his bearings doubles as a charming meditation on the frayed bonds of family.
This Chinese film’s protagonist is a food critic who spends time with the proprietor of a humbler restaurant, discussing changing flavours and tastes of the locals. While ARU’s menu blends native Australian ingredients and modern Asian flavours, these characters’ discussions gravitate around Chinese cuisine and culture.
