Twitter: https://twitter.com/goddessofreadin Website: http://evthoxiaroussakis.wix.com/goddessofgreatreads Lenny Papadopoulos' Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/bouklas In nineteenth-century China, in a remote Hunan county, a girl named Lily, at the tender age of seven, is paired with a laotong, or "old same," in an emotional match that will last a lifetime. The laotong, Snow Flower, introduces herself by sending Lily a silk fan on which she has written a poem in nu shu, a unique language that Chinese women created in order to communicate in secret, away from the influence of men. As the years pass, Lily and Snow Flower send messages on the fan and compose stories on handkerchiefs, reaching out of isolation to share their hopes, dreams, and accomplishments. They both endure the agony of footbinding and together reflect upon their arranged marriages, shared loneliness, and the joys and tragedies of motherhood. The two find solace, developing a bond that keeps their spirits alive. But when a misunderstanding arises, their deep friendship suddenly threatens to tear apart.

From the director of "The Joy Luck Club," Wayne Wang, and inspired by the bestselling novel Snow Flower And The Secret Fan by Lisa See, this film is a timeless portrait of female friendship. In 19th-century China, seven-year-old girls Snow Flower and Lily are matched as laotong, or "old sames" bound together for eternity. Isolated by their families, they furtively communicate by taking turns writing in a secret language--nu shu--between the folds of a white silk fan. In a parallel story in present day Shanghai, the laotong's descendants, Nina and Sophia, struggle to maintain the intimacy of their own childhood friendship in the face of demanding careers, complicated love lives, and a relentlessly evolving Shanghai. Drawing on the lessons of the past, the two modern women must understand the story of their ancestral connection, hidden from them in the folds of the antique white silk fan, or risk losing one another forever. What unfolds are two stories, generations apart, but everlasting in their universal notion of love, hope and friendship.

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan (2011) {PG-13}Trailer for movie review at http://www.edsreview.com
 
02:25
http://www.edsreview.com/movie-review-snow-flower-and-the-secret-fan-2011-pg-13 Two stories intertwined about the lifelong friendship of two girls from 19th Century China, and two girls who are descendants of these girls in modern China. According to the prologue, marriage carried all benefits for the men, wealth, power, and gain, but through a custom of laotong, two women would become sisters for life and be devoted to each other and to protect and nurture each other. We join the two modern day girls as they are taught the custom and told the reason why they should watch out for each other. But one of the girls writes the story of their ancestors, Snow Flower (Gianna Jun) and Lily (Bingbing Li) who were matched when they were seven years old hundreds of years ago. The wrote between the folds of a white silk fan, in a secret language. In modern times, Nina (Bingbing Li) and Sophia (Gianna Jun) struggle to maintain their connection in the face of their lives, careers, and the troubles of the modern world. They become separated due to problems and secrets until a horrible tragedy brings them back together in a way that neither would wish. This is a very beautiful film, and a wonderful story, though not perfect. First and foremost, this is not the book. I have not read the book, but from what I hear it's a wonderful story. The story of ancestral girls is from the book, and of course it goes far deeper into the relationship and hardships of these two girls. The movie, on the other hand, invents a whole new modern day story which really angered the lovers of the book. For purists, the intertwining of the two stories is very confusing. I didn't find that to be the case at all, as although the same two girls play both roles, it is very easy to tell which time period you are looking at as the background, dress, and scenery is very different. The other complaint I hear is that it is slow. Movies of this genre usually are, and this is no exception. It's a deep and somewhat dark look at how the lives of women in China it rough. Like Joy Luck Club (which is from the same people) it's not a fast paced action adventure. So some of the critics were vicious on this film, and I don't think it's warranted. I thought it was very touching, very poignant, and very beautiful. The lessons that the girls learned (the two stories are surprisingly similar) are valuable. Friendships should be loyal and long lasting, and having a friend for life is a stellar accomplishment. Too often we get twisted away on the turns and obstacles in our life, and lose our focus. It's nice to have someone who can ground us to our roots. Especially in Asian cultures where family relationships are so important, this is a good lesson. The stories are very strong, and very touching. Bring a Kleenex with you when you watch it. Find a nice warm mug of hot chocolate and a snuggie and put this film on. It should be done in one sitting, so's to get the entire impact, and I think you'll find it enjoyable, at least if you've got a soft spot in there somewhere. Hugh Jackman makes an appearance (and sings in Chinese of all things) but don't blink you're eyes or you'll miss him. Well, maybe not, as he really stands out in a film mostly in Chinese (with English Subtitles) with mostly Chinese characters. :-) For hundred more reviews, new DVD release dates, discussion, opinions, and more, visit us at http://edsreview.com

Lisa See on Snow Flower and the Secret Fan - The John Adams Institute
 
01:27:06
On September 6, 2005, The John Adams Institute hosted an evening with Lisa See. Her novel Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is a brilliantly realistic journey into to a world that is as deeply moving as it is sorrowful. ‘It is achingly beautiful,’ raves best-selling author Amy Tan. ‘A marvel of imagination of a real and secret world that has only recently disappeared.’ Set in 19th century China, the book recounts the sworn sisterhood (laotong, or “old sames”) between Lily and Snow Flower. In an era when wives and daughters were foot-bound and lived in total seclusion, the women in remote Hunan County developed their own secret writing (nu shu) to reach out of their isolation to share their hopes, dreams and accomplishments. In this engrossing novel, Lily tells of her profound bond with Snow Flower, their arranged marriages, loneliness, joys and tragedies of motherhood, through famine and rebellion. Lisa See was born in Paris, but grew up in Los Angeles, spending much of her time in Chinatown. Her first book, On Gold Mountain: One Hundred Year Odyssey of My Chinese-American Family, was a national bestseller and a New York Times Notable Book of 1995. Flower Net, published in 1997, is a riveting story of a murder investigation in today’s China. It was a national bestseller, and a New York Times Notable Book of 1997. Foreign rights were sold to fourteen countries, and Paramount Pictures owns the film rights. Flower Net, The Interior, (2000), and Dragon Bones (2003) all feature detective Liu Hulan as protagonist. Lisa See has been a correspondent for Publishers Weekly for thirteen years, and a freelance journalist for among others Vogue, The New York Times Book Review, The L.A. Times, and The Washington Post. She is active in many Chinese cultural organizations, and lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two sons.

She is matched with Snow Flower in a match that transcends anything else in their world, but a misunderstanding sends Lily reeling.

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan
 
07:31
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is a 2005 novel by Lisa See set in nineteenth century China. In her introduction to the novel, See writes that Lily, the narrator, was born on April 8, 1824 — "the fifth day of the sixth month of the third year of the Daoguang Emperor's reign". The novel begins in 1903, when Lily is 80 years old. It continues on to tell the story of her life from birth, childhood, marriage, and old age. During her lifetime, Lily lives through the reigns of four emperors of the Qing dynasty: Daoguang; Xianfeng; Tongzhi; and Guangxu. The University of Southern California China historian Charlotte Furth wrote that Western readers think of Chinese women simply as victims and focus on such problems as footbinding and arranged marriages, but that Lisa See's historical novels "follow the best feminist scholarship on women in the Ming-Qing period by tackling these stereotypes." In Snowflower and the Secret Fan and in Peony in Love, See "asks readers to imagine how a few such women might have found voices of their own within, rather than in opposition to, the Confucian social order, and how they found ways to self-fulfillment without flouting their culture’s fundamental values."
