Farewell My Concubine
The movie Begins in Beijing during China's Communist era. The focus on the lives of the opera singers displayed the upheaval of the Cultural Revolution, the strict traditions and the new beliefs and ways of the most recent government revolution. The picture first shows the opera singers in modern time, reuniting in 1977. The film follows the two stars over a period of fifty years. Their names are Chang Dieyl, and Duan Xiaolou.

I was sincerely impressed by the movie; it was a very moving historical and educational soap opera. The raw truth of China during that era made the movie excellent. I would let the director know that although the film gave me nightmares, the violence and actions were necessary to show Communist China the evolution of its history, the importance of the arts and the conservation of traditions.
