Product description

Zhang Yimou (Ju Dou) directed this fascinating; visually formal 1991 film about an educated woman (Gong Li) who is sent off to become the newest wife of a feudal nobleman in 1920s China. Nearly isolated in his spooky; palatial home; she develops relationships with several of the other wives and slowly becomes aware of a hideous legacy of punishment toward more willful women. The film has a brittle and dry quality that is deliberate; but also suggestive of Zhang working through various explorations of his own style (which he resolved in his next film; The Story of Qiu Ju). Gong Li; one of the world's great actresses; is superb. --Tom Keogh
