Great movie!

If you liked Chinese Ghost Story or Beijing Opera Blues then you'll like this one too. Gong Li is beautiful as always and so are the scenes... I really enjoyed this film! Can't wait to see it on DVD/LD! :)

Pure fantasy - 2 Gong Li's for the price of one

Author: sangepengyou from United States

If you've only seen Gong Li's big epics, this movie will come as quite a startling surprise... but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Everyone needs a change of pace from time to time and this film definitely falls into that group.

This is definitely not the Gong Li that most westerners know but there is something about Gong Li's dual turn as a naive, ancient court lady and her haughty 1930s two-bit actress reincarnation that will definitely prompt a double-take. It's almost like two different movies rolled into one: the first an ancient love drama, the second twentieth century silliness with some intriguing costume choices. There are tears and laughter, almost like Gong Li was trying to poke fun at herself.

Watched with the right type of expectations, this fantasy filled movie is reasonably enjoyable purely escapist fare.
