An absolutely beautiful film by the director of Raise the Red Lantern; I felt as though I were watching a lavishly produced ballet instead of a movie. If you're heading to the theatre to see this film, do your fellow patrons a favor: if you're just there to see Jet Li kick ass and chat on your cell phone for half an hour, don't bother. Just stay home and watch the Matrix on cable again, ok?
