大红灯笼高高挂, 1991 (Raise the Red Lantern)
dir. Zhang Yimou
One of my all time favorite movies!
Curse of the Golden Flower is one of my favorite contemporary films. With a lavishing production and a twisted plot, this movie is an absolute thrill to watch and to enjoy. I love its action scenes, so beautifully directed by Zhang Yimou and its performances. Gong Li plays one of the most astounding villains I have ever seen. Be sure to also listen to its soundtrack, it’s fantastic! A feast for the eyes and a magnetic storyline linking with Shakespearian tragedies. I love this movie.
