Man Cheng Jin Dai Huang Jin Jia

Curse of the Golden Flower

(China/Hong Kong, 2006, 113 minutes)

In Tang dynasty China, the Empress plots to overthrow the Emperor, who in turn is attempting to poison her. Operatic, overblown court melodrama whose baroque, virtuoso stylings prove the perfect foil to the palace intrigues at its heart.
