An auspicious debut for Canadian filmmaker Julia Kwan, this 2005 feature follows two young sisters on their divergent paths to recovery after their beloved grandmother dies. The older girl (Hollie Lo), acting as interpreter for her English-challenged mother (Vivian Wu), is converted to Christianity by some door-to-door evangelists, while the younger child (Phoebe Kut), born under the unlucky zodiac sign of the Fire Horse, has a more elastic view of spirituality and communes easily with Jesus, the Maitreya Buddha, and a dancing goddess. Lovingly realized and light of touch, this is a beguiling family movie. In English and subtitled Cantonese. 92 min.
