A good movie

I have always been a fan of Asian movies especially in the 90's. Unfortunately, I don't watch many of those nowadays. Honestly, I'm not really knowledgeable about Zhang Yimou. I mean, I have seen half of his movies but I'm still missing his best movies which he made in the 90's. Anyway, I was definitely eager to check his directing debut, also starring Gong Li in her acting debut as well. First of... read more

"13.3. Zhangin Visuaalisesti komeassa elokuvassa Gong Lin esittämä maalaistyttö kaupataan lepraa sairastavalle rikkaalle kauppiaalle. Rakkaus ei oikein ehdi kukoistaa, koska joku vähän käy murhaamassa miestä. Sen jälkeen on aika valmistaa viinaa naisen johtamassa yrityksessä. Ensimmäisen tunnin ajan Red Sorghum kuvaakin melko mukavasti naisen asemaa maaseudun Kiinassa. Sitten japanilaiset hyökkäävät ja elokuva muuttuu paasaamiseksi siitä, miten japanilaiset ovat pahoja ja kiinala"

Anyway, I was definitely eager to check his directing debut, also starring Gong Li in her acting debut as well. First of all, it is a really gorgeous movie to look at. Only for this, it is worth a look. Furthermore, the acting was pretty impressive as well. I mean, Gong Li was only 22 years but she still manage to give a very good performance. It is too bad I only managed to see her recent work because she is a rather fascinating actress. On the downside, I have to admit that the whole thing was rather slow and the” read more
