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.

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. »

"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.
