Storyline

Camels carry a bride to her groom's house; he is a wealthy tofu maker and the bride's father is in debt to him. Leading the caravan is Kui, a strong, courageous, and naive peasant. Bandits intercept them and carry off the bride. Kui follows: two days later, at the bandits' stronghold, he seeks her return. The gang lord tests Kui then grants his wish. The groom, meanwhile, has died in an accident preparing to give chase. His iron-willed mother orders the wedding to proceed, and she marries the bride to a wooden pole resembling her son. The bride chaffs at this prison, and after a year, brings Kiu to her bed. Kiu is cast out and she is severely punished. Does Kiu have any options? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

one of the 12 best asian films...
10 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is definitely on my list. As with most asian films, the visuals are striking. And as to be expected with asian films, several scenes can tell a story without dialogue. Some might argue that the interweaving of the various elements of Kui's life-story are slow, but how they manage to all come together in the end is incredibly done. "Young Mistress'" punishment is stereotypically harsh when viewed from western eyes, but it doesn't distract from the film. I defintely recommend this one to any fan of asian films...
