Year of The Fish In Watery Animation 

New DVD release

David Kaplan wrote and directed this adult Cinderella story set in New York's Chinatown. Ye Xian takes a job at the massage parlor of the wicked Madame Su, who expects Ye Xian to treat the clients to "happy endings." Refusing this, the 17-year-old becomes an unappreciated housemaid. To make matters worse, Ye Xian depends on her income from Madame Su to provide for her sick father. But things take a turn for the better when she meets a mysterious woman and a goldfish who aid her in finding her prince. The movie features a style of animation called rotoscoping, in which film of live actors and settings is animated to provide a dreamy amalgam of the two.
