The evidence of successful plastic surgery
31 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie is about the late Chinese premier En-Lai Zhou, whose name is used as the title of the movie.

Mr. Tie-Cheng Wang had played En-Lai Zhou for many times, but he was forced to retire due to his age, but thanks to the plastic surgery, Mr. Tie-Cheng Wang is back in filming again, playing the same character he was so used to and so good at.

In comparison to other Chinese movies, this movie revealed something that Chinese government would rather not want to be discussed and fearing for being banned, the film crew had to prepare two versions, one original, another edited version without the stuff that would potentially cause the governmental censorship to ban the movie.

However, somebody got a bright idea: the then Chinese premier was the raised by En-Lai Zhou so he was invited to view the original, under the cover of pointing out the possible flaws of the movie. The premier cried through the entire movie and at the end claimed that everything depicted is exactly like what had happened and praised the film crew.

Obviously the governmental censorship could not do anything now and this is how the movie revealed something the Chinese government would rather not to talk about.
