{The Curse of the Golden Flower}


The Curse of the Golden Flower centers around a volatile balance of power between a King (Chow Yun Fat), a Queen (Gong Li), and his three sons. Betrayal, deceit, and passion unfold, pitting the King against Queen and father against sons. This wonderful piece of moving art includes many of the creative team behind Hero and House of Flying Daggers. The film marks the reunion between director Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern) and his muse (and former lover) Gong Li and with a budget of $45 million it is the most expensive Chinese film to date.

The film opens in theaters Stateside December 22nd, but you can find the import on ebay or your local Asian video store.
