Charming Vision of Guangxi
22 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

While definitely dated, this movie has much to offer. Scenery, music and a decent plot. While the communist leanings are clear here, look beyond that for the beauty inherent in the story. (Perhaps something like William Hurt's character does with Kiss of the Spider Woman). Anyway this movie is known in China and Zhang Yimoh has created an outdoor theatrical presentation (Impressions of Liu San Jie) very loosely based on the story which is presented near Guilin, China and the current theatrical show is perhaps better known than the original today.
