Farewell, My Concubine is a movie with two parallel, intertwined stories. It is the story of two performers in the Beijing Opera, stage brothers, and the woman who comes between them. At the same time, it attempts to do no less than squeeze the entire political history of China in the twentieth century into a three-hour time-frame.

This is a Chinese historical drama directed by Chen Kaige.
It is a compelling tale of two lifelong friends unexpectedlly caught in a passionate love triangle with the woman who comes between both of them.
In the background, the film explores the effect of China's political turmoil during the mid-20th century on the lives of individuals, families, and groups.
With vivid, shocking and provocative imagery throughout, it is an amazing and heart-wrenching drama of love and betrayal.

absolutely extraordinary, even epic, operatic in its reach and in its splendid operatic achievements, a glorious paean to Chinese opera and its inspirational legacy
