The theme of this film is the relationship between mothers and daughters, which does provide a well-crafted collection of stories that intertwine like a Chinese tapestry. The fact that each daughter comes away with a deeper understanding of her mother, and vice versa, is lovely; however, the vehicles this film uses are not, at least for kids and young teens. Foul language, in English and Chinese, is semi-frequent. Violence, including the drowning of a live baby, is quite disturbing, particularly for Judeo-Christian families who are most likely pro-life. One of the daughters is also co-habitating with a boyfriend and using condoms, and there is at least one sex scene. Not for kids under 17 and 18, and even then, make sure your older teens are mature and ready for a discussion of this mixed-bag film.
