The Director Yimou Zhang follows up House of Flying Daggers and Hero with his most lavish epic yet. Curse of the Golden Flower is an extraordinary film. It is a big-budget extravaganza that is reminiscent of some of the Hollywood epics of the fifties and sixties. As with all Zhang's western exports, his use of colour is incredible. The palace of Emperor Ping is brought to the screen in a blaze of arresting colour. Every costume and set create a world of sumptuous majesty a world that you will be immediately drawn into.
Of course, like all Asian Cinema, this film has the usual martial arts set pieces throughout, but it does not seem to rely on them to keep the audience interested. Instead, the film uses a complex plot involving the power struggle between the two leads. Chow Yun Fat, as Ping, presents a character who is ruthless and dogmatic, and Gong Li's Empress Phoenix is vulnerable and defiant. Both stars' perfomances are beyond reproach, and all of these qualities come together to create a gloriously opulent saga.
The Curse of the Golden Flower is an epic filled with intrigue and breathtakingly-bloody battle scenes, all set against a backdrop of radiantly decadent colour. If you liked Flying Daggers and Hero, you will adore the Curse of the Golden Flower.
stop looking,it was so hard to concentrate on the movie itself,have to watch this again to see what
I missed,this is a movie on the grandest scale I've ever seen in my life,the costume, the set stage and
design was immaculate to say the bloody least,I'm in awe with this spectacle of a movie,
this movie is set in the lavish [that's putting it mildly] and breathtakingly world hidden from the eyes of mere
mortals behind the walls of the forbidden city,this is about revenge and betrayal of one Family struggle divided
by itself,of course there is blood to be spilled in the quest for redemption,
"Curse of the Golden Flower"is called a martial arts classic but I don't see it that way,there is no where here that
I've seen that would make it that way,it was more like a battle scene to me, there was some but not much to talk
about,this blu-ray of the movie is good picture quality to show all the colors and fine detail that come to life on screen,
Mastered in High Definition.
