Plot Outline:

1920s China - the young Songlian if forced into marriage with the powerful lord Chen Zuoqian following her father's death. He already has three wives, and the women are constantly scheming to be the chosen one he spends the night with - signified by a red lantern - as the incentives - status, power, privilege - cannot be ignored. But his power struggle will soon get out of hand. -- Chris Kavan

Everything about this film is beautiful - from the tortured and emotional story, to the evocative score (with especially haunting songs), to the vibrant cinematography. This is a poignant landmark of Asian cinema that will stick with you long after viewing.

Interesting to see Yimou's early work. 10 years before Hero, he is using light and color as defining elements of this tragic story. Very memorable.

Beautiful examination of sexual politics in China told with excellent detail; Zhang Yimou's direction and Gong Li's performance are superb. Final Grade: A-
