The Reviews for Red Sorghum (1987) 1080p

Not Quite Ready for Prime TimeReviewed bypaloma54Vote: 3/10

Well, I admit that I am a fan of Zhang Yimou's movies, but this film seems to me inept, ill-paced, tedious, poorly edited, and somewhat propagandizing in overall feel. Yes, some of the imagery and cinematography is stunning, yes, Li Gong is fabulous, but altogether, it doesn't seem to add up to much. There are long stretches of film with literally no movement at all, no narration, no sound (usually the last thing about which I complain!), and nothing happening. The lack of continuity or explanation of events makes for a disjointed story. It isn't helped by the extremely inept English subtitles which accompany the copy I viewed from my local library. I hope someone will release a version with a decent set of subtitles. Honestly, most of the international students I know, including those from China, could do a better job of translating the subtitles.

All in all, this film seems promising but extremely amateurish, a quality which seems to endear it to those buffs of "art films".

The film opens with the narrator's telling us that a father has just arranged the marriage of his daughter -- the egregiously beautiful Gong Li -- to a wine merchant who is rich but leprous. We see the bride-to-be carried in a bright red sedan by half a dozen men, followed by another small band playing Chinese music on tinny instruments. It's not a Hollywood movie. The procession doesn't move solemnly across the arid landscape as it might if, say, Gene Tierney or Susan Hayward were being carried. The men holding the sedan have heavy round wooden dowels across their shoulders and are ridiculing the young lady, bouncing her up and down, singing riotously about how she will soon catch leprosy. None of this causes Gong Li any pleasure, and she discretely tucks a pair of scissors into her blouse.

After the wedding and a few odd interruptions, somebody apparently kills the leprous winery owner and Gong Li is now the owner. She begins with a clean slate. From now on, she won't be called "boss" but by her real name. The men will burn everything the leper touched and will sprinkle sorghum wine all around the plantation because the wine is known to cure all evil. At this point it was beginning to sound like an endorsement of communism but the dozen workers react with such unencumbered joy, screaming drunkenly and splashing the wine all over the place, that visions of "Viridiana" came to mind. What are they going to do next, somehow desecrate Confucius? Gong Li was apparently raped on her way to her wedding by the narrator's grandfather. After she takes command of the winery, she is kidnapped by bandits and apparently abused again before being ransomed. Meanwhile, the narrator's grandfather, penniless, has been wandering the countryside. He's not too smart, gets belligerent in a roadside beef house run by the bandits.

Cut. Forty-eight minutes into the story, the video clip ends with no parts to follow. And so we leave grandpa, surrounded by murdering bandits who want to cut out his tongue for non-payment of a bill at a Chinese restaurant. He's reckless, lawless, and stupid but I hope he keeps his tongue in the future in this colorful story -- such as it is.

more colorful than the title suggestsReviewed bymjneu59Vote: 7/10

The much heralded renaissance of New Chinese Cinema can be an acquired taste to many Western filmgoers, but this handsome period piece (directed by the cinematographer of 'Yellow Earth', 1984) is livelier and more accessible than most. Part folk tale, part historical drama, it tells the story of a young virgin (sold by her father into marriage with a wealthy leper, in return for a mule), who after her husband's mysterious death continues to run his successful vineyard, with help from her loyal wedding bearers. And yet for all its undeniable physical beauty and colorful action the film can be a dry experience, at least until the outbreak of the second Sino-Japanese War in the 1930s. With the Japanese occupation some emotional urgency finally breaks through the film's mantle of reserve, which up to that point had marked even the more bawdy episodes of communal singing and drinking.
