Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress (2002, 111 minutes)

I saw Gone Girl last Friday and enjoyed the film up until I realized what horrible people it centered around.  Not flawed human beings, but monsters.   730 more words

十月十日 - 10th Oct

Today happens to be the anniversary of the ‘Double tenth’ event that I had discussed in my previous post! (加油中国). This will be a short post written in Mandarin, talking about a film that I watched to gain insight on Chinese history (particularly the formation of the People’s Republic of China) called ‘The Soong Sisters’, which in Chinese is called: 宋家皇朝 or 宋家三姐妹 (Sòng jiā san Jiě mèi)。 我们今天看了“宋家皇朝”,它讲的是关于中国现代历史,宋家三姐妹的故事。她们叫宋蔼龄,宋庆龄和宋美龄。她们都又美丽又出色。她们一个爱钱,一个爱,一个爱她的国家。 我被这部片陶醉。我觉得这个故事很有意思,而且那些的演员演得非常真实,感人。 如果你想看中国近代的历史片, 世界我祝你好运 从欣妍。
