    when he lays down the sorghum, a mating dance

  3. dionysus67's rating of the film Red Sorghum

    An exquisite in aesthetic terms rural drama that travereses with force the entire gamut of the shades of red. Commingling local rituals, a passionate love affair, female emancipation and nationalist struggle (against the Japanese), Yimou succeeds eventually in providing a dramatically intense film with first-class acting and with equally vivid colors burning the screen and the senses. Not his best, but a runner-up!

  11. Ostermyers's rating of the film Red Sorghum

    Zhang Yimou was already an aesthetic master in his first film...how about that ?

  12. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Red Sorghum

    90% superb storytelling, 10 % propaganda so not quite a masterpiece but scenes that stay in your memory like the journey of the bride. The last part of the film, with the arrival of the Japanese in the picture, is a bit less interesting although the mise-en-scene is first-class throughout the whole movie. Highly recommended.

  13. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Red Sorghum

    Un voz en off (aspirando casi a un leyenda o mito) presenta una relación amorosa concebida de una manera curiosa, posiblemente normal dentro de la época y el mismo terreno, que luego salta a un testimonio más histórico y dramático. Duros son esos instantes. Un filme limpiamente pictórico y de varios recursos tradicionales.

    It is not just a film about a woman, it is about what China is..

  17. EDDIE I's rating of the film Red Sorghum

    The scenes in the cornfields are brilliantly done.

  18. Drew Kelly's rating of the film Red Sorghum

    Brilliantly executed drama, yet it was a little unclear as to where the narrative was going, it seemed like a lot of the scenes didn't add to the story, whatever that was.
