Curse of the Golden Flower Costumes

Gong Li in The Curse of the Golden Flower

Descriptive reviews of this film from TheAge.com website: "This costume drama is a chamber piece on a grand scale, a sometimes dazzling spectacle of royal intrigue." Says Philippa Hawker, Reviewer. See her whole review and synopsis of the film.

For more awesome images, videos and descriptions of the costumes worn in this film, see the official Sony Site for the Film.

This film is not only visually and aesthetically pleasing, with the awesome settings and beautifully designed costumes, it is also an informative look into the life style in China during the later Tang Dynasty in the 10th Century.

Pictures from Curse of the Golden Flower
The movie is directed by Zhang Yimou, who has also directed other Chinese epic color laden films such as House of Flying Daggers and Hero. All three movies are more than worth your time, check them out! The extras on the DVD for Curse of the Golden Flower go into great behind the scenes details and show the costumes extensively.
