《饮食男女》是父亲三部曲最后一部电影,于1994年上映,导演李安。主要描写了出家庭亲情及世代隔阂。

This film tells the story of a semi-retired and widowed Chinese master chef at the Taipei Grand Hotel. Chef Chu (Sihung Lung) and his family are living in modern day Taipei, Taiwan. At the start of the film, he lives with his three attractive daughters, all of whom are unattached. As the film progresses, each daughter encounters new men. When these new relationships blossom, their roles are broken and the living situation within the family changes. The father eventually brings the greatest surprise to the audience at the end of the story.
本片讲述了圆山饭店的大厨,每个星期弄了一大桌菜让三个女儿杨贵媚、吴倩莲和王渝文回家来吃饭,但总是不欢而散,反而他为年轻寡妇张艾嘉的小女儿做几个便当菜,却让小朋友们吃得津津有味。三个女儿各有爱情上的烦恼,没有人关心老爸,令他连味觉也逐渐失去了。女儿们本以为从美国回来的归亚蕾很适合跟老爸凑一对,不料他的再婚物件大爆冷门。本片的剧情安排无疑是相当刻意,用隆重的吃饭仪式来架构全片虽符合主角身份,却表现得不够生动自然。不过导演还是将这个伦理喜剧拍得流畅热闹,风格上依旧兼顾中国文化与国际口味,是典型雅俗共赏路线下的作品,那些令人垂涎的菜式展示更成为本片最大特色。

In 1995, Hsu invited Lee to return to Taiwan to make Eat Drink Man Woman, a film that depicts traditional values, modern relationships, and family conflicts in Taipei. The film was a box office hit and was critically acclaimed. For a second consecutive year, Lee’s film received the Best Foreign Language Film nomination in both the Golden Globe and Academy Awards, as well as in the British Academy Award. Eat Drink Man Woman won five awards in Taiwan and internationally, including the Best Director from Independent Spirit.
徐立功在1994年与李安再次合作《饮食男女》,背景则设定台湾,剧情描绘台北一个家庭中存在的传统价值观、现代都市人的互动及成员之间的矛盾。这部电影再次获得票房上的成功,并广受好评。李安的电影连续两年同时在金球奖和奥斯卡奖获得最佳外语片的提名,同时也首次入围英国电影和电视艺术学院奖。《饮食男女》在台湾和国际上总共夺得五个奖项,包括独立精神奖最佳导演奖。
