Add to basket RED SORGHUM
In 1930s China a young woman is sent by her father to marry the leprous owner of a winery. Torn by tradition and honour she is at odds with the owner and seeks fulfilment elsewhere. In the nearby red sorghum fields she falls for one of his servants and when her master dies she finds herself inheriting the isolated business and establishes a family legacy.
Featuring Gong Li (Curse Of The Golden Flower) in a mesmerising performance, the astonishing directorial debut of Zhang Yimou (Raise The Red Lantern, Hero) is a sumptuous ode to resilience and hope, set amidst the peaceful sorghum fields never far from the turbulent backdrop of war. A remarkable mix of genres Red Sorghum delicately treads between the allure of fable and the startling brutality of realism.
