Thumbs up Curse of the Golden Flower

Great Chinese movie. Chinese Emperor attempts to kill off his Empress while she plots a coup against him. All the while the three Princes take sides in the battle to come. Good acting, too bad I do not speak Chinese (not sure what dialect it is in). Saw it on Starz.

I really like the Chinese title of the movie, Man cheng jin dai huang jin jia.

Got a nice ring to it.

I agree, Chinese flicks can be pretty good. The lead actress in this movie did some mainstream stuff over here in the states, appearing in Miami Vice.
