Banana in a Nutshell

Film (Excerpts) – 2005

At the end of the day, Banana in a Nutshell is simply my love story. It’s a story that I know isn’t uncommon, and I bare my heart in the hope of finding sympathetic, and empathetic others.
– Director Roseanne Liang, in the catalogue for the 2005 NZ International Film Festival
...a generous, intelligent, brave film, comprehensive and personal, specific and universal. As an artefact of our multicultural society, it's a gem.
– Peter Calder in a four star review, The NZ Herald, 31 March 2016
The slang definition of ‘Banana’ is ‘an Asian who has been brought up in Western society: yellow on the outside, white on the inside’. Well, that’s me. And this is my story, in a nutshell.
