@Nummie, the titles of your last 3 days are really wierd... in a good way. I've never heard about any of those, can you give some more information about them?
@Ang Mo, I believe I have seen Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress several years back. But unfortunately, I've only seen some part of it and at that time I wasn't really that interested with it.
Over the weekend, I just watched the Korean-Chinese movie Musa. And true to what Ang Mo said earlier, it was indeed so much better than Warriors of Heaven and Earth. I actually watched it twice last weekend. The only quirk I had with the movie was the subtitles, sad to say, the grammar were thrown out of the window, and they were flashed to fast for one to read. I found myself fiddling with the pause-play button for the first run. That's why I watched it again.
Aside from Musa, I've also watched another Asian movie. A Hong-Kong movie called The Seven Swords directed by Tsui-Hark, one of the more notable Chinese action-movie director. Set in one of China's old chaotic dynasty, it's just simply a mindless action movie. With absurd sword actions riddled by unexplained super human abilities. You're better off watching Tsui-Hark's previous release, Time and Tide.
Here's a great Chinese movie that I've watched several years ago. It's a true story, the story about the women behind great Chinese leaders: Gen. Chang Kai-Shek and Dr. Sun Yat-Sen. It's about the 3 daughters of Charlie Soong, one married to Dr. Sun and the other married to Gen. Chang. It stars Maggie Cheung, Michelle Yeoh (James Bond:Tomorrow Never Dies and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), Vivian Wu. It's a very powerful movie about the politics that took place in China, the Chinese civil war fought between Gen. Chang Kai-Shek and Chairman Mao Ze-Dong (Mao Tse-Tung). Plus the compounding invasion of the Japanese forces. Kitaro, a Japanese musician also did a wonderful job on the musical score.
Edit: Ooops, I forgot the title... The Soong Sisters. Thanks rahau.
