Any woman would actually have to be quite ambitious to sign up to find love online and leave their families hoping to find a better life. But once they find it, learn English, and catch up on the cultural differences, they don't need the man anymore, do they? Well-unless he's very good looking and wealthy. But, friends, a good looking and wealthy man wouldn't need to be seeking this kind of love arrangement, would he??? He would be able to find an Asian woman in the urban area where he lives.
In any case, I love documentaries and plan to watch this one when I get the chance. The sizzle page written by the director is well written. Ultimately it her documentary is about unlearning bad stereotypes.
Sandy comes to realize that both Steven and life in America are not as ideal as she had expected. But as she confronts many of Steven’s bad habits, he begins to change. His obsession with many Asian women becomes a deep commitment to one — and he recognizes that in order to keep Sandy, he must learn how to be a caring, respectful, and culturally sensitive husband. Above all he must confront the reality of marriage — not to the sweet innocent girl he imagined, but to a demanding, strong-willed Asian woman.
The director also created a companion website at www.theyreallsobeautiful.com which talks about "yellow fever" as a fetish. There are 5 webisodes discussing various aspects of the Asian fetish and invites discourse in the comments. It's interesting, I have a deep admiration for Japanese culture as does my man. He practiced Judo for many years. He likes animation from Japan. And we both like Japanese art.
I love it when the woman says at the end of this clip "Every day is a reminder that I'm not that submissive."
