|"Explains Wang, 'In all the films I've done up until this point, I've treated my own culture and people with respect and care. I felt this was necessary since US film history doesn't really contain any viable or accurate images of the Chinese in this country. The three films I've done about the Chinese-American experience are a trilogy. "Chan" introduced the American film-going audience to the complexities and contradictions of the Chinese community. "Dim Sum" focused microscopically onto one family and the relationship between a mother and a daughter. "Tea" went back to the source, to the beginning of the Chinese-American family. After these three films, I felt I had fulfilled a certain obligation.'"
--From "Life is Cheap...But Toilet Paper is Expensive" press kit
|"I could now be more boldly critical about some aspects of Chinese culture; not Chinese-American culture per se, but Chinese culture in general. There were strong statements about this '5000 years of culture' that needed to be made. That's why "Life is Cheap..." comes out blasting, furnace hot. It takes aim against the inflexibility of tradition, particularly as it manifests itself in Hong Kong, with Western quirks and inequities."
Wayne Wang quoted in the press kit for "Life is Cheap...But Toilet Paper is Expensive"
