Glamour Lives, in Chinese Films

From the New York Times: “Once upon a time in Hollywood, the stars shone with a radiant glamour; in Chinese they still do. In movies from Beijing to Hong Kong, actresses like Zhang Ziyi and actors like Tony Leung Chiu-wai fill the screen with heart-skipping beauty and charm. In May at the Cannes Festival, audiences swooned for Wong Kar-wai’s romantic drama “2046” and Zhang Yimou’s latest swordsman epic, ‘House of Flying Daggers.’ Although they couldn’t be more different in story, sensibility and visual pleasures, what the films share in addition to Ms. Zhang is an extraordinary glamour born from the tension between release and repression. ”
