More than twenty years ago, there were three Ban-doh (outdoor banquet) master chefs who dominated the catering business in Taiwan. They were known as Master Silly Mortal, Master Ghost Head and Master Fly Spirit. However, the outdoor banquet business has been in decline since Taiwan's economic take-off. Master Fly Spirit wants to pass the family recipes and culinary skills on to his only child...
« A highly entertaining comedy based on Ban-doh, a unique form of Taiwanese banquet culture. » (Taipei Times)
« Very likeable foodie comedy boasts a strong script and engaging characters. » (Sino-Cinema)
« Now just turned 50, Chen Yu-Hsun, one of the most distinctive of the second generation of Taiwan New Wave directors, makes a terrific comeback with Zone Pro Site, a foodie film that's a clever compendium of trends in the island's cinema but packaged in a much more accessible way for non-Taiwanese than other recent hits. What makes Zone Pro Site different is the way in which it transcends its 'local-ness' to become an emotionally engaging character comedy on its own terms and also gently satirises the genre it's working in. » (Derek Elley, Film Business Asia)
