"A demonstration of how a great epic can function. I was generally familiar with the important moments in modern Chinese history, but this film helped me to feel and imagine what it was like to live in the country during those times. This is one of the year's best films." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"This is entertaining filmmaking on a grand scale." - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Appropriately operatic, Chen's visually spectacular epic is sumptuous in every respect. Intelligent, enthralling, rhapsodic." - Geoff Andrew, Time Out
Kaige’s acclaimed, long-out-of-print masterpiece chronicles the rise of two young stars of the Beijing Opera House, their turbulent relationship, and ultimate downfalls. Beginning in 1924 and spanning nearly half a century, FAREWELL MY CONCUBINE’s sumptuous narrative is interwoven with moments from some of the most troublesome times in modern Chinese history, including Japan’s 1937 invasion, through to the Chinese Cultural Revolution and its aftermath. A new 30th anniversary 4K restoration of the film’s original cut, this Palme d’Or winner and two- time Academy Award–nominated epic features incredible lead performances from international stars Leslie Cheung, Fengyi Zhang, and Gong Li.
