The Bowker Video Directory lists _Dim Sum: A Little Bit of Heart_, a 1985
comedy directed by Wayne Wang. It's about the conflict of values between
mother and daughter in a Chinese-American family. (Very nice, I saw it back
then.) Distributed by Image Entertainment on laser disc, $49.95. Where
that leaves you for a video copy, I dunno, but you could call Image and see
if they know anything.
