A very good movie

1 year, 1 month ago at Apr 16 18:57
I remember very well when this movie was released. Back then, I was about 13-14 years, it was a big critical success and it even won the Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival. And yet, even though I have always been eager to check this movie, it eventually took me more than 20 years to finally watch the damned thing.

"Farewell, My Concubine" is a movie with two parallel, intertwined stories. It is the story of two performers in the Beijing Opera, stage brothers, and the woman who comes between them. At the same time, it attempts to do no less than squeeze the entire political history of China in the twentieth century into a three-hour time-frame.
Release date: 15 October 1993
UPC: 717951002723

"Original Title: 'Ba wang bie ji' Country: China Directed by: Chen Kaige With: Leslie Cheung, Gong Li Plot: The story of two men, who met as apprentices in the Peking Opera, and stayed friends for over 50 years. Note: I have to admit that it turned out to be a tough watch though. Indeed, even though I have myself always been interested in Asian movies, it still struggled to connect with this tale which lasted almost 3 hours. Furthermore, it didn't help that the beginning was rather confusi"

"27.4. Oopperaseurueeseen liittynyt poika on nyt tyttö, koska hänelle sanotaan, että hän on naisellinen. Alueen oopperaperinteeseen kuulunut tapa siitä, että naiset eivät saa esiintyä, joten heidän tilalleen otetaan naista esittävä mies, tarjoilee hyvät puitteet pohtia hieman sukupuoli-identiteettijuttuja pintapuolisesti. Sen lisäksi elokuvassa nähdään poikkeuksellisen kekseliästä kolmiodraamaa - keskiössä ystävyys, kaipuu ja pienoinen gay-alavire. "

30 From 93: My Favorite Films From 1993 (30 movies items)

"A three-way relationship between two stars of the Chinese opera and a blossomed concubine proves to be more tumultuous than the historical upheaval of Twentieth Century China. And as anyone who is extensively familiar with Eastern history knows, the land of the Rising Sun went through alot of major ass political changes during that period of time. Thus providing China with the type of complicated history that would rival the kind that results from any personal relationship that involves a woman."
