The author of se lines saw him toger with hardly more than 30 WeiterenZuschauern in tiny hall 12 of CinemaXx at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin. It that what you might call an intimate idea. German, Asians UndDeutsch-Asians sat in ranks.
The film is about New York economics professor Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), who accompanies her friend Nick Young (Henry Golding) to his HeimatSingapur and gets to know his family re. That's so rich that your can hide 200 million-dollar estate on Google Maps. Like Sichherausstellt, Nick is a kind of Asian Prince Harry. In eyes of this family, Rachel is nothing more than a upstart American who has a Chinese mor, but does not understand anything from tradition or class. So far, so Cinderella.
But re's something else. A culture shock that redefines BegriffKulturschock.
In Singapore, Rachel notes to her surprise, romping around Asian super-rich. People who, by way, buy earrings for 1, 2Millionen dollars and arrange weddings for 40 million dollars, things like that.

It is a good-humoured, self-ironic romantischeKomödie; Shameless in ir kitsch and display of wealth (by way, a very Chinese thing).
