Having no other option, Li Xuelian, a poorly educated villager, and her husband Qin Yuhe agree to fake a divorce. However, during the couple's separation, Qin falls in love with another woman--and as if his divorce with Li was real--he decides to move on with his life, leaving the jilted former spouse out in the cold. Under those circumstances and in the dreadful position of being denounced as a Pan Jinlian--a 17th-century Chinese adulteress who conspired with her partner to kill her husband--Li sets off on a legal crusade to clear her name. But even though Li is undoubtedly determined, on the other hand, she is nothing but a small nuisance in a sluggish and bureaucratic system where, sometimes, ants can become elephants. In the end, how long can a single woman hold on against an entire government?

If you are someone who has a lot of sex with a lot of women and don't care what anyone thinks, and you have a bit of a problem finding love, this is for you. All the characters are the usual Chinese people, so if you don't like them, well, that's your own fault. If you do like them, it is a very nice movie. The cast is full of well known stars, and you can always count on each character to be funny. And I love a movie that has a funny scene or two. I love to laugh and when it was over, I was crying. You know you've got a good movie when you think of a new cliché in this movie.

This is a great film about the relationship between a woman and her daughters and how their lives intersect. It's also a story about the aging process and how it affects each person's mental health. This film does an amazing job in showing the experience of women, especially Chinese women, of aging, as they take on multiple roles in their family and in their community. We're given many interesting and sometimes sad views on the changing nature of the relationship between mother and daughter, their roles as mothers and mothers-in-law, and the influence that their elders have on their own health. I highly recommend this film. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about aging. I highly recommend it to everyone.

I was looking forward to seeing this film, especially after the recent Oscar nominations. I found that I did not quite see it the way I was hoping to. The movie is about a story that seems to be fairly straightforward. It starts off with a family of four: four parents and four children. The parents are a woman and her two children. The four children are a boy, a girl and a boy and a girl. The father is a very caring and caring man who is constantly the center of attention. His wife works at a factory, and she is left to care for the children. The son is an adult with a complicated life. He is lonely and the father is constantly in search of him. He gets into a situation where he goes out with his friend and his dad tells him that his friend is the boy who will marry the daughter of his wife. The boy gets in contact with the father, and they spend the night together. It seems that this is the beginning of a strange relationship between the father and the boy. I found that the father is so sweet and caring, and the boy seems to be in a difficult situation. He is lonely, and the father does not seem to be understanding of him. In the end the father decides to tell the boy that he is the boy's father. The boy becomes very upset, and he runs away. At this point I was wondering how I should feel about this movie. Should I be happy or should I be sad. I found that I was not happy. The movie has the feeling of the emotional reality of having a parent that is totally devoted to the children, and this is the only reason that they are there. However, I found that the movie was a very sad story. The father had done something so strange and so selfish. It makes you feel that maybe the father should have done something better, or that maybe he should not have left the children alone, or that maybe he should have done something more with the son. It makes you wonder what will the father do next, and it makes you feel that this is not the way to raise children. I found the story was too sad. I was wondering what I should feel about this story, and it made me feel sad. The movie is a good story, and it has a good message. It is not the best movie that I have ever seen, but it is a good movie.

Beware, this is not the usual approach of those people who want to "spoil" your movies. It's not that there are lots of obscure characters and uninteresting parts. The special effects and cinematography is great. The script is absolutely good, the dialogs are realistic and moving. The only negative point is that some scenes have a really long running time. At the end, it is a fun movie to watch. Go and see it. It's really enjoyable and not all bad, I believe. One of my favorite movies of all time.

I have been following Hwang Jang Yun (Dan Chung) from around the time of his graduation from high school. When I first started watching this film, I knew nothing about it. I did not know that the Director is Koo-Jin Kim (A Room With a View) and that the actress is Zhang Wei. They were very talented, but they were only known as actors and not actresses. But, since I have a great love for Dan Chung, I decided to watch this movie. I have to admit that this movie was very emotional and very captivating. The film is about how the blind man who cannot see anything, from the day he was born, he will be blind from the first day. His life is filled with complications and difficulties as he struggles to overcome the blindness. Dan Chung is the character who is blind. We see the events through his eyes, so we can understand what he sees and how he sees. He has never heard of a blind man, so his vision is not affected by the loss of sight. He is a normal person, nothing special, and has a regular life. But, he is afraid of losing sight, and he is constantly in the clouds. The film shows that he sees things that others do not see. This film was very moving and very captivating. It is a wonderful movie. The storyline was very interesting, and it was a good example of how blind people are treated. This film was very inspiring and amazing. I recommend this film to people who are interested in how people living with blindness are treated. 8/10

This is a very good movie. It is a very interesting story that touches on social issues in China. It is very difficult to get people to relate to and feel sorry for a person who is crazy, but this movie made me think. It is well done, the acting is good, and the story is interesting. It is also very funny. It is very difficult to get this film out of China and it is very rare to see it on TV. It is a must see film.

Like most of the romantic comedy dramas, this one's not really that big a deal in the grand scheme of things. It's about the city where the two main characters live, and what happens when they cross paths, just like in almost every romantic comedy. But while it's quite common to see two characters who are actually close, but are only peripherally related, there's a new element here. I think it's this idea that a romantic comedy is not really necessary. Sure, it's nice to see a couple hit it off, but when a story is told and it ends in a happy note, it's important to see the relationship develop and how they progress, and this film does it in a very exciting and fun way. The actors are all so likable and likable, the relationship between the leads is very well done. I felt really connected to them, and I thought it was a very realistic and enjoyable way to tell a story. And the film does it without breaking the rules of romantic comedies, which is a big plus. It's not as gory or as graphic as the majority of them, and it has a very different feel. The film is just too good, it's well written and well directed, and I think that's why it works so well. So I give it an 8 out of 10. It's definitely worth a watch. I hope it gets released on DVD in the US, because it's definitely one of the better romantic comedies I've seen.

Yi Zhang (Vincent Lau) is a new born baby boy and he is rushed to hospital and immediately suffers from epileptic fits. He is not only brought in by his parents but is also given a magical baby doll named Pooh. The baby is not only loved by the parents, he is also revered as an ambassador for the baby. So one of the first things that the parents have to do is to persuade the nurse to put Pooh in a bag and to take him home to Hong Kong. But it isn't a simple task because the baby is so special and so special is the care that he gets from the parents. But the parents are just so devastated and they are just so shocked when they discover that Pooh has died. I really liked this film because the concept is fantastic and it also shows that you can be lucky to have someone as a baby just for a few minutes. It is truly heartwarming and I really liked it. I am sure that most of the people that have seen this film will like it as well because this film is so good.

I just got done watching this film and I must say that this film is excellent. I really like the idea of a Chinese film being made in America. I feel that this film is very true to the Chinese culture. The director was able to capture the uniqueness of this culture in a very good way. I really like how he portrays Chinese culture in this film. This film is the story of a two sisters who want to make it big in their business but they are forced to give up their dreams because of family problems. The acting in this film is superb. All of the actors in this film were able to do an excellent job. The directing was very well done. I really enjoyed how the director captured the uniqueness of the Chinese culture in this film. This film is not as successful as other Chinese films but it is still a very good film. I rate this film 8/10.

Mr. and Mrs. Jun Zhang's second movie in China, Black Widow, takes place in the same period of time as the first movie, but the two are almost unrelated to each other. It has a simple plot that revolves around two well-off women that are divorced and live in separate homes. The story revolves around the activities of these women and how they try to maintain their homes and children. While their husband is a successful and wealthy businessman, they still have to put up with his drunken wife and her family who threaten to move out. One day, they decide to go for a vacation to some famous scenic spot in the city. But, they decide to visit an old friend of theirs, who is a real estate developer. At the start of the movie, the plot takes a turn to the mundane when they go for a meal in a hotel and are forced to witness the murders of their friend and a young man who was killed by his wife. There is also an amazing scene where they are in a beautiful park and suddenly find out that they have to pay a visit to the people who killed their friend and the man who killed his wife. After the murder, the woman decides to go to the police and come clean with them. But, her husband suddenly decides to help the killer and proves his innocence. As the movie continues, the couple's conflicts increase. They get into a long conversation with the police officers and they begin to think that they may have something to do with the deaths of their friend and the man who killed his wife. While this movie has a simple plot, it is not the kind of film that is easy to follow. However, the movie is very good and has an engaging storyline that could have gone very far. It is great to see that the actresses have grown up and are getting more experience in film-making. They are all talented actresses and they are a part of the success of this movie.

This is a very realistic, yet fun, and very funny movie. The storyline is very simple, but the humor that is introduced within the first five minutes is so refreshing and fun. The story is about a man named Cao Yi, and his two sons. Cao Yi's youngest son, called Cao Yi (played by Wang Yuehlong), is very good at his job, but he has a problem with drinking, which his father has no problem with. He drinks too much, and at times his liver is so over-full that he will pass out. This leads to the question of whether he has any choice in the matter. His older son, Cao Yi (played by Wang Shuhui), also suffers with the same problem. Cao Yi's youngest son, called Pan Jin Lian (played by Chen Shu), has no such problem, and his father can not accept it. Cao Yi's wife, Wang Yi (played by Xiu Yuan), is very fond of Cao Yi and has decided to marry him. Cao Yi is very jealous of this, and has made a plan to throw her away. The plan works, and he succeeds. Cao Yi sets up a trap for Wang Yi, and she meets the men who will take her away, and they will help him to make the best of her. She gets the idea that Cao Yi and her father have a long-standing romantic love. The other two men are Ba Guo (played by Yu Xianyi) and He Chang (played by Zhao Lin). When she finds out that Cao Yi is actually the father, she is furious. She sets up a trap for him, but she is found out and it is Cao Yi who is caught, but he is saved by Cao Yi. She has her revenge, and he is arrested. The man who saved Cao Yi is the same man who took her away, and he is imprisoned for murder. Cao Yi is released from jail and goes back to his village to face the people he loved. The movie is very funny and extremely clever, but it is also very sad. The humor and humor in this movie is something that most people cannot understand. It is much more serious than a lot of movies, but it is also very humorous. It is a very great movie that I highly recommend.

A few people have criticized the plot of this film, mainly saying that it is too thin and the characters are too one dimensional. They are right. What I really liked about the film is how it portrayed the characters, especially the female protagonist, and how they react to the situation. Not all women are stoic when it comes to dealing with emotional situations, nor do all men, who are all very much in denial and never really deal with their feelings. It is just about the situation, and the consequences of that situation. This film is not "based on a true story". It is not like the "Fatal Attraction" film, where a single incident has a life and meaning to the whole film. The film "Lucky Star" is about a couple who have the ability to overcome the obstacles in their lives, and that's it. No tragic events, no heart-wrenching episodes. Just a couple with a happy life in a happy place. One's emotions and needs may get in the way. That's the way the real world is, and this film shows how it is.

We are told, before we enter the hotel, "The way you see the world, is to be generous. But you will be lucky if you get out of this room alive." To this day, I am not so lucky. I had a chance to go and see this movie in China. To me, this was one of the most powerful and honest movies I have seen in my life. The movie is based on the life of a man who has two jobs: "a hotel manager" and a rich businessman. This man and his family has been in a tragic experience. At the beginning of the movie, he meets the young girl, whose life is a mirror to his own. The family's past is a little bit different, so the movie starts from there. The movie is full of drama, great acting, and at the end, a surprising ending. This movie is not a typical Chinese movie. The characters and their actions are not easy to understand. But it is worth it. My vote is eight. Title (China): "The hotel manager is not so generous as he thinks"

It's hard to say this is a good film because this is a really very good film. You'll have to see it yourself. I'm not sure what to say about it. I'm just really surprised that it's so good. It's really different from the other films that I have seen recently. It's very gritty and shows how life is really hard. You have to watch this film and you will like it. A very very good film, I really recommend it.

I watched this movie because I was curious what is the secret behind the HONG KONG SOLAR WINDMILL that makes the stars do all this? I was pleasantly surprised, because it was really a great story about friendship, and also, I saw it with my brother, so it was fun watching a brother and sister being the same age. The comedy is great, the actors did a great job, and the chemistry was really well built between the leads. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone.

The people that have watched the film are really interesting to me. But the most interesting one is the man behind the scenes. This is the director of the movie "I, Robot". He just managed to take a formula, play it as a person, and made it funny, sad, and interesting. All I can say is this is one of the best Chinese films of the year. So many people are upset by the abrupt ending, but this is how it should be done. It's also a great thing to see him in his real life. The script and the acting are also excellent. People usually say the same thing about these two genres, but I feel like I am the only one that thinks that the script is great. You know you can trust this movie to a certain extent, but I still feel that this one is much better than all the other Hollywood trash. I hope that more people will see this movie, and I hope that more people will say that the characters are so believable, and I don't know how to express this in a word, but they are. I think this movie is truly outstanding. This is the first time that I've seen a movie like this, and I hope that this will be the last. I hope to see more great Chinese movies like this one. This one is the best one I've seen in a long time.

I read many reviews before seeing this film and all I can say is that the feedback I got was 100% accurate. It is certainly not an easy movie to sit through but this is a refreshing one. The portrayal of the Chinese elite that I found fascinating was done in an original way that is never "douchey". The film takes a great many different approaches to the characters and their interactions. This is by no means a film for everyone. It is not a romantic comedy or a drama, nor is it a character study of the "heroine" but rather a celebration of the Chinese elite and how they live their lives. It is interesting to see the world through the eyes of a Chinese elite. The dialog between the various characters is brilliant. I was particularly impressed with the performances of Bo, the bad guy, and Mei, the heroine. It is amazing to see how well they managed to portray their characters. Some of the other actors do a great job as well. The final scene with the men and women in the courtyard, and the Japanese soldiers in the park, is absolutely beautiful. These moments are certainly the highlight of the film. The film is wonderfully crafted, well thought out, and what could be a simple film becomes a rather complex and thought provoking film. I highly recommend this film. It is definitely one of the best films of the year.

Battleship Potemkin is based on true events. The first time I saw the film I thought it was brilliant, I was so relieved when I discovered that it was based on a true story. The story of this film is based on real events that took place in Russian-occupied China during the Chinese Civil War. In the beginning of the movie, I found myself constantly laughing at the plot and how horrible the Chinese were. I couldn't help but get caught up in the situation. I could feel the anger and frustration of the Chinese. One of the greatest things about the film is that it paints the Chinese in such a negative light. It's great to see a film that is so bleak and depressing at the same time. However, I did have some issues with the acting. Some of the characters were great and the action scenes were great, but for some reason I found that every character had some kind of flaw that made them terrible. I didn't understand why the Chinese would be so hard on the Chinese soldiers. I didn't find this to be a problem with the film. The action was great and the story was interesting. It was very interesting to see the Chinese react to the actions of the Chinese soldiers. I found the action to be very realistic and the Chinese soldiers to be very fearsome. I also thought that the acting was very good. It was very good. The most important thing about this film is that it's great to see a film that is not very realistic, and a film that is really depressing. I love these type of films because I like to be a bit pessimistic and pessimistic in general. This film was a little pessimistic, but it was still a great film.

The movie is based on the story of the former Chinese army officer who was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his wife. The movie is about the efforts of the former army officer to try to get out of prison and to avoid being executed. The movie is very touching and the characters are very well developed. The movie is full of life and life is worth living.

THE BUDDHA DOGS OF NORTH KOREA (Wong Joon Ho, 2008) is an entertaining romantic comedy that delves into the absurd yet comical situations the dog girls encounter on their journey to the North Korea border. When they arrive in North Korea, it is here where we find that there is no such thing as the dog family and that the girls are in fact quite the typical, stoned, and lonely middle-aged housewives. Soon enough though, they are forced to get to work in a sort of ranch for the beasts and take care of their "breeding." With the aid of the all-female's companionship, they eventually gain their freedom from the tyranny of the totalitarian regime and turn their attention to becoming animal lovers. The plot is rather silly but that only enhances the film's overall fun. The humor here is not as heavy as in "Fight Club" or even "Shakespeare in Love" but is still very effective. In addition, the chemistry between the female leads is very good and the film is definitely worth watching. The characters in the film are somewhat generic but the women are actually quite likable. This is one of the more well-done films of 2008 and is very much worth a viewing. It is also quite hilarious.
