A staggering epic that pits Chinese history and culture against melodramatic romanticism in a conventionally beautiful, powerful way with lush camerawork, intricate costuming and set design, sweeping and lyrical themes, and passionate performances. If anything, it's too devoted to the conventions of the form, making it feel a bit rigid. Nonetheless, it's a dark, gruesome, and revealing take on the show-business character study with lots of observations on creativity, abuse, and sexuality.

Great acting that helps dull but cannot overcome the negative effects induced by excessive length and a rather conventional eye behind the camera. Once Gong Li shows up, the human drama really takes off, though it never really connects solidly with ALL THE HISTORY that is happening all around them. I think the film would be much more successful with a more subtle approach to the cultural changes.

The whole movie is 80, Leslie Cheung's acting was 98, and other actors were good too including the short-show of Wenli Jiang. Although this kind of set for actors is kind of stiff and for story is over symbolised, luckily,it fit here. Considering the surrounding when this movie was made, it was not bad to use these old-fashioned and academic art styles. The only good movie of Chen Kaige's.

Sumptuous, though the drift into melodrama in the middle is a little offputting. Sure ends well, though.
