Raise the Red Lantern (1991)

Rated PG

It’s an unbelievable feat that the director, Yimou Zhang, made in making a film about concubines with a PG rating. Zhang’s astounding story tells the inside workings of a harem. It tells the women’s side of story. The cinematography is crème de la crème of photography. It’s exquisitely shot. I can’t get past the colors–amazing. This is a film on all film lovers lists to see.
