Half-Rice, Half-Cracker Review of American Fusion

American Fusion

Yvonne, played by Sylvia Chang, is 49 years old, immigrated from China, and divorced. Doomed to a loveless life with a large, eccentric immigrant family, she falls for a Mex-Am dentist, Jose, played by Esai Morales.

To realize her true love, Yvonne must overcome three demanding siblings, a thousand years of conservative Chinese culture, and one overbearing mother who broke her back in a massage accident.

Good soundtrack on the standard Chi-Am immigrant romantic comedy fare. Accent seems appropriate. Mostly Asian cast and crew with Pat Morita and James Hong as the nostalgia fixtures.

Currently in post.
