I just watched "Raise The Red Lantern" with Gong Li who starred as the hateful giesha in
"Geisha". Incredible film and she's wonderful. It's about a woman who's summoned to a mandarin's home to become his concubine. Whenever he wants to sleep with one of his concubines, a red lantern is raised outside their living quarters. He's married and has another mistress as well. Gong Li's character hates being in this position so the only thing she can do to survive is to ... (I won't say :))The film has everything, passion, murder, revenge, great photography and of course Gong Li. It's subtitled and after a short time you get used to it.

I totally agree with you. I posted earlier that DH and the border and I watched the whole 2 hours and 40 minutes and from the first half hour were each thinking "can you kill him now?".

BTW, the coward's name was Robert Ford. not that it mattered (then or now).

Oh, and what did those computer animated cloud scenes have to do with anything?

Official end of rant on this subject.
