Tigertail ★★★

Pin Jui's immigrant story is a poignant realization of the sacrifice made by our parent's generation. The recital of the lost love from the perspective of a stoic and apathetic 60's-years-old Pin Jui ( terrifically played by Tzi Ma) would convince you that the romantic illusion of the one-that-got-away does exist.

Still the viewer can garner loads of fondness despite the absence of the levity-considering it comes from Master of None's lead creator. Otherwise that the movie can gain plenty more of wistful aches if the narrative has not been slightly compressed as it has. Actually, I voluntarily prepare to sit even longer because the story potentially has much more to offer.
