Curse of the Golden Flower

Hi. Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon is a great movie. I liked The Emperor and the Assassin, Fair well My Concubine. I didn't especially like Hero or House of Flying Daggers, and Curse of the Golden Flower is bad.

The Director Yimou Zhang's sense of color is much brighter and more garish than Ang Lee's or Kaige Chen's, which can be visually impressive in spots, but I suspect it's his primary focus, rather than story or pacing or characters. Anyway, I'm sorry to say that there isn't much else to recommend this film, and I left feeling like it hadn't been worth the time.
