  • This indie film at once fuses animation with live-action and fairy tales with modern life. In THE YEAR OF THE FISH, Ye Xian (An Nguyen) has just arrived in New York City from China, but her hopes for the American dream are soon dashed. When she won't provide clients at the massage parlor where she works the requisite "happy ending," her boss (Tsai Chin) relegates her to cleaning and laundry. However, the gift of a goldfish from an odd man (Randall Duk Kim) and a budding relationship with a jazz musician (Ken Leung) help to give Ye Xian some hope. This contemporary take on Cinderella was shot on video, but digital painting in post-production gives the film a beautiful, dreamy look.

  • Critic Reviews
    "An adult fable told with childlike simplicity, YEAR OF THE FISH updates an ancient Chinese version of the 'Cinderella' story with imagination, charm and just the right amount of sweetness."
