A personal window to an entire country through time,
This review is from: Farewell My Concubine [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This is a film about turbulances. The personal stories are minitures of the story of China going through changing times. Great performances from the main characters supported by well-crafted cinematography and carefully nurtured dialogues. For those who are ignorant of Chinese opera, this could be a starting point on a curioius journey.
