飯戲攻心 TABLE FOR SIX
2022 / Comedy / Hong Kong / 116 min
Canonese / Subtitles: English
A family reunion dinner turns awkward when Bernard arrives with his new girlfriend, who happens to be big brother Steve’s old flame. With Steve’s casual partner coming to his rescue, anything that can go wrong goes laughably berserk.
SYNOPSIS / It is often said that food and meals bring families together, but in TABLE FOR SIX it’s clear that not all family gatherings are a cause for celebration. In this melodramatic comedy, three brothers reside in a home that they inherited from their late parents. The eldest brother Steve, theoretically is the man of the
house, but he constantly is getting dissed by his two younger brothers Bernard and Lung for the decisions he makes, the inedible meals that he cooks, and his complicated romantic encounters. To prepare for a family reunion dinner, Steve seeks the help of Lung’s girlfriend and foodie Josephine and in doing so, wins back their hearts for a while, until his old flame and Bernard’s new girlfriend Monica shows up. That’s a recipe for a disaster waiting to explode! The unexpected visit of Steve’s part-time girlfriend Meow not only fails to turn down the heat and cool the awkward situation, but stirs up the sibling conflict even further.
“Table for Six,” chronicles a family’s holiday gathering where food, love, friendship, jealousy and relationships are on the menu.
