Andre A. Neves's rating of the film The Bitter Tea of General Yen

"There isn’t a General Yen or Megan Davis, but just you and me." The most complex movie of Capra and a magnificent film that is flying under the radar. Starts as american idealism against chinese pragmatism (“This fool prefers civil war to the loving arms of his bride.”) but develops into a love-in- spite-of-prejudice story that is hard to forget.
