Accompanied by two girl mates, I went to watch Mei Lanfang. When "the end" showed on the screen, I found that both of them were crying. To be honest, I was a little bit confused at that moment--does it really worth the tear? Compared with Cheng Kaige's previous film "Wu Ji", "Mei Lanfang" is really a good movie, just good. It is not the first time for Cheng to make a film connected with Pecking opera. In 1993, his Golden Palm winning film" Ba Wang Bie Ji" really made the history. Althoug "Mei Lanfang" is a biographic film about the most famous Chinese Pecking opera actor, although it is more than 2 hours long, it failed to reach "Ba Wang Bie Ji"standard, just too slight.
