Ang Lee China, 2000

HKFanatic's rating of the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Watching "Sense and Sensibility" for the first time, I had the (not exactly profound) realization 'This is just like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon...only without the martial arts!' Though CTHD must be considered a development of Ang Lee's signature themes, as this feels like the first film in which his characters acknowledge that the harder they resist their emotions, the sooner they are overpowered by them.
