I've got five DVDs of Chen Kaige's (FAREWELL MY CONCUBINE) SACRIFICE to give away! If you're interested, here's a trailer showcasing the movie's action sequences:
And here's the synopsis:
Written and directed by Kaige and set during the opulent Yuan Dynasty in the 5th century B.C., SACRIFICE is the story of a newborn prince whose entire family, the Zhao clan, is wiped out by a rival general who ruthlessly seizes the throne. An ordinary man, the doctor who delivers the baby, gives up everything dearest to him to save the last young survivor in the bloodline of the noble Zhao, and secretly raises the child as his own. But the doctor, played impeccably by acclaimed actor Ge You, has devised his own plot for revenge and makes the cold-blooded General, Tu Angu, the boy’s godfather, allowing the would-be-King to infiltrate the royal palace as a guest. When the boy becomes a man, he must choose between two fathers, while the destiny of a nation rests with his decision.SACRIFICE is a sweeping story rich with suspense, humanity and emotion, featuring outstanding performances by some of China’s great actors including the beloved Ge You (Farewell My Concubine), Wang Xue-Qi (Forever Enthralled), Fan Bing-Bing, Zhang Feng-Yi and Huang Xiaoming. SACRIFICE was the number one film in the China for two weeks and is based on the classic play Orphan of Zhao, written by Ji Jun-Xiang, which was the first Chinese play known to Europe.SACRIFICE, 2011, 126 minutes. Written and Directed by Chen Kaige. Produced by Chen Hong and Qin Hong. Executive Producers: Ren Zhonglun, Long Qiuyun, Qin Hong and Chen Hong. Screenplay: Chen, Gao Xuan, Ren Baoru and Zhao Ningyu.

You keep posting it on every article, and, yet, every single time I click it, it works exactly like it's supposed to. Shut the fuck up mate.

Not that i'm complaining. Not in the least. Anytime Chen Kaige makes an historical movie, it's time to rejoice. This guy is a master of the genre. And i urge everybody to watch "The Emperor and The Assassin". If for nothing else, to check out how hot Gong Li is.

Or only if they were made after HK control switched back to China? Or do you mean Chinese language movies?

...back on topic, am I the only person that fell deeply in love with Chen Kaige's 'Wu Ji'? I mean, I know all of China hated it, and supposedly nobody in the world understood it, but I followed it just fine. A very meaningful film. I never got the hatred at all. I think it's a gorgeous piece of fantasy cinema, and the music by Klaus Badelt is breathtaking. Did anyone else on the planet actually like the film? Or was it just me?
