Standard costume drama
1 August 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

I saw this film with the title Li Lianying the Imperial Eunuch. It's neither better nor worse than most other Chinese historical epics that I've seen and has a story that is hard for Occidentals to appreciate. There's some lovely photography but the film is very talky and probably of interest mostly to hardcore Chinese film or history buffs.
