More Chinese Cinema.

I love old Chinese films, I’ll use this page to add a few interesting links.


This film deserves to be better known in the West.    

  柳堡的故事(全集)      九九艳阳天-电影《柳堡的故事》主题曲  

九艳阳天 which to me looks like ‘Ninety Nine Sunny Spring Days’

I cried my eyes out seeing the above clip, so beautiful. Here is the same tho extended clip from the film

Postscript: My friend in China, Zhu Zhu knew quite easily from which film the above stunning clip is from. The film itself is called ‘The Story of Liubao’, made in 1960.  Here is the complete film: is a Chinese youtube – massive.

Here is ‘Jiang Chunshui Flows to the East’ 一江春水向东流 which I think is ‘The Yangtze Flows East’. And another which I’ve watched though already and can recommend 地道战 which reads ‘Tunnel Warfare’.

Here is an absolute gem, stunningly photographed. An interesting film set one hundred years ago. 红旗谱 [gong1;hong2] qi2 pu3  “Red Flag Colours……?” (my bad translation)   1960 by Beijing Motion picture studio. Some beautiful scenes and settings, excellent atmospheric musical score. A masterpiece.

Heres a random small clip, interesting:

Also, 英雄儿女 ying1 xiong2 er2 nu:3  (machine translates as heroic children) ‘Battle on an Unknown Hill’ has incredible energy in the war with the Koreans : 

Lastly, a film title I know well, tho have yet to watch ‘Red Detachment of Women’ 红色娘子军  be warned!!

Postscript: Here is the accompanying text for the  ‘Story of Liubao’:

And here is the machine
