About the Movie

While there, they make a discovery that turns their world upside-down. A Picture of You is a serious movie about life that smashes into a funny movie about death. It’s a story about family, loss, secrets, letting go, and starting anew.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mr. Chan's skill with actors - particularly with Ms. Mei and Mr. Pang's persuasive, easygoing banter - compensates for the story's limitations. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Jun 19, 2014

Fresh: A curiously likable, entertainingly laid-back Asian-American take on all-too-familiar dysfunctional family tropes, this Kickstarter-enabled effort boldly mines farce along with sentiment. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Jun 30, 2014

Fresh: Nimbly avoiding the excesses of melodrama and the recessiveness of mumblecore, Chan and his likably low-key cast navigate hairpin turns from drama to comedy to outright farce with an impressive sense of proportion. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Sep 11, 2014

Fresh: This disarmingly low-key genre-hybrid delivers both dramatically and comedically. – Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 11, 2014

Touching and Funny

A brother, who took care of his mother while she was dying, and a sister, who wasn’t there for her, must clean out their mother’s house together. They work out their difference’s in a touching and comical way. Even though the plot gets a little strange, everything seems real in this wonderfully shot and acted film.

jp chan’s a picture of you review

For one, at the beginning, I was expecting it to be all full of drama. However, there are pleasant surprises that leave you with light-hearted humour and amusement.

The characters represented were presented well, and with focus on growth and tackling the Asian stereotypes to an amusing and funny approach.

Great film!

Funny and touching without being forced

This was an excellent movie. First, what a treat it is to see actors of color have roles in which their race is not the main focus of the story. The writing and acting really shine here and it is an interesting blend of genres both comedic and dramatic without feeling melodramatic or forced. The characters and story are engaging and there are many moments of surprise and delight. You’ll find yourself routing for the characters. Looking forward to what this director has in store for the future!
