Default Re: The Foreign Film Thread.

Enjoyed Chen Kaige's Yellow Earth. Does the whole revealing-characters-through-song thing Tsai Ming-liang used to try with films like The Hole, but better, working it into this story of a soldier dispatched to the countryside to gather happy folk songs promoting the Communist revolution and finding only misery and humanity in the music instead.
