Cannes Film Review: ‘Coming Home’

21 May 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Filmmaking doesn’t get more traditional or timeless than Chinese master Zhang Yimou’s “Coming Home,” a family drama of guilt, love and reconciliation set during the aftermath of the Cultural Revolution. Heartbreaking in its depiction of ordinary lives affected by political upheaval, this ode to the fundamental values that survive even under such dire circumstances has an epic gravity that recalls another great historical romance, “Doctor Zhivago.” While younger viewers may find Zhang’s classical style and grungy period backdrop too unfashionable to engage, the film’s rich melodramatic thrust has opened the floodgates for domestic audiences, grossing nearly $19.6 million in five days. Sony Classics will release the film Stateside.

Coming Home” is adapted from the novel “The Criminal Lu Yanshi” by American-based novelist Yan Geling, whose “The 13 Flowers of Nanjing” was adapted into Zhang’s “The Flowers of War.” While Yan’s fiction traced Lu’s life from »

Zhang Yimou’s ‘Coming Home’ Gets Stunning Teaser

17 April 2014 10:51 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Zhang Yimou’s latest offering, Coming Home, looks to be a very powerful and unforgettable film, and that’s based solely on this subtle and moving teaser trailer. Yimou, director of Hero, House Of Flying Daggers, Riding Alone For Thousands Of Miles and The Road Home, has had a very prolific career where he has mixed martial arts with calm dramas, and even found time for a Blood Simple remake in the form of A Woman, A Gun And A Noodle Shop.

His latest stars Gong Li and Chen Daoming. Chen stars a husband forced into marriage, who soon escapes to America, only to return to face his family and the consequences. Coming Home is all set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and will hopefully get international distribution soon after. The use of simple but stunning shots, backed up by a beautiful piano score, have placed this high on my Watch List. »

'Criminal Minds': Joe Mantegna 'leading the troops into battle' by doubling as director

22 January 2014 10:45 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Joe Mantegna often is seen calling the shots on "Criminal Minds," but that's more the case than ever this week.

The veteran actor, who plays FBI Supervisory Special Agent David Rossi on the long-running CBS drama, also directs the show for the first time Wednesday (Jan. 22). Titled "The Road Home," the story references a 2012 tale about Rossi's former Marine sergeant (again played by guest star Meshach Taylor), whose disappearance separates Rossi from the rest of the Behavioral Analysis Unit as he launches a search.

"They knew I'd directed before," Mantegna tells Zap2it of being offered the chance by the "Criminal Minds" producers. "I directed a feature years ago called 'Lakeboat,' and our executive producer Erica [Messer] had seen it. Matthew Gray Gubler has directed the show several times, and Thomas Gibson directed his first episode last season ... so she said, 'We'd like you to do one if you'd like to. »
