Realistic portrait of Empress Dowager's Eunuch
21 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

In the previous communist propaganda films, eunuchs, especially this Empress Dowager's favorite, who held the highest position, was portrayed as a devil. This film is great in that it breaks free from the traditional communist ideological restriction, describing Li Lianying, the protagonist, as the way he was in real life. In comparison to his earlier films, such as Horse Thief (Dao Ma Zei, 1986), the director moved a step further, but soon he would meet his end in his future work, as in Blue Kite, which was no longer tolerated by the regime and banned in China.
