Back in January, [livejournal.com profile] esrblog and I went with our friends [livejournal.com profile] pmat and [livejournal.com profile] shakati to see a movie called "The Curse of the Golden Flower." Actually, I dragged everyone to see it, in the innocent belief that it was a Chinese Martial Arts Movie, and that [livejournal.com profile] esrblog would, therefore, love it.

It turns out that I was wrong. Oh, it was definitely Chinese, complete with subtitles. But there wasn't much in the way of martial arts, at least not in the Jet Li movie sense. Instead, it turned out to be a cross between a big-budget historical epic and a Chinese version of "Dynasty." The four of us (including [livejournal.com profile] esrblog) rather liked it, but it's not likely to be to everyone's taste. Because it's impossible to say too much more about it that would be meaningful without wandering into Spoilerland, I'll put the rest of this post under a cut.

Spoiler bait here. )
