I just watched this movie a few hours ago and i am still dizzy.
The lack of background colors and the almost constant rain add to the complex intrigue.
Until the end, one does not know where the director will take us.
It is beautifully crafted, the action is realistic, the acting is perfect.
This is another "Chef d'oeuvre" from Zhang Yimou.
It will be one of these few movies which I shall watch again.. and again, with the same pleasure
