ASIAN TUESDAY: TRAILERS AND POSTERS FOR YIMOU ZHANG'S CHINESE DRAMA 'COMING HOME' WITH GONG LI & CHEN DAOMING, AND EPIC ACTION 'THE ASSASSIN' WITH SHU QI ND CHANG CHEN

   YIMOU ZHANG'S 'COMING HOME' 
WITH MAGNIFICENT GONG LI!
It is an exquisitely boring start of the week, people, so, as usual in such cases, the spy is going Asian! First up, a very touching movie coming from China! COMING HOME from famous Yimou Zhang will open in USA this September and has already played around the world.
LOVE NEVER FOR- GETS  
Lu Yanshi (Chen Daoming) and Feng Wanyu (Gong Li) are a devoted couple forced to separate when Lu is arrested and sent to a labor camp as a political prisoner, just as his wife is injured in an accident. Released during the last days of the Cultural Revolution, he finally returns home only to find that his beloved wife has amnesia and remembers little of her past. Unable to recognize Lu, she patiently waits for her husband's return. A stranger alone in the heart of his broken family, Lu Yanshi determines to resurrect their past together and reawaken his wife's memory.
 


   'THE ASSASSIN' POSTER & CLIP
FROM CANNES FILM FESTIVAL
Another one coming from China is epic action drama which opened at Cannes Film Festival this year: THE ASSASSIN  has the story set during the mighty Tang Dynasty period in Chinese history. Nie Yinniang (Shu Qi) returns to family after several years in exile. The mission of her order is to eliminate the tyrany of the Governors who avoid the authority of the Emperor. Now she will have to choose between sacrificing the man she loves (Chang Chen), or break definitively with the "order of the Assassins". The movie has a USA distributor as well!

  2. Coming Home will most certainly be a great film to see. The story has such depth, sadness and truth in it. It's also beautifully filmed I loved his Raise the Red Lantern and several of us made it required viewing for undergraduate students. It was a yearly event and although those students grumbled about "having to see a movie for credit", they all came out changed as people and grateful to have seen it.

    I've not been in as I got sunstroke last week from working outside too long in the heat. I wound up in hospital for few hours and have been wiped out since then.

    1. Da hell, Annzie!?! Why did you stay out so long in the sun? OMG! I was worried but I thought your father in law maybe wasn't well. Are you better now?

      I do so love Yimou too! He has a rare elegance in film making

    2. Dahlink,underneath it all, I'm daft as a badger. I knew it was hot out, but I didn't realise how hot until I was wobbling around like a drunken woman. By then it was too late. I'm fine now, just grouchy from being stuck inside.

      I would love you to send me the VICIOUS Cd's. You must allow me to send you something in return. Is there something that you can't get in Serbia that I can get for you?

    3. Utter craziness! Didn't you feel you was hot, dear? The hubby now won't let you out till the end of summer :) You need to buy yourself a big straw hat too so that you will at least have some shade above your head.
      While I was returning from city yesterday at around noon with my groceries, I came upon a bunch of very black people, immigrants from Africa seeking asylym in EU but they usually stop them in my city since we're at the border with EU, and one of them wore long pants,long sleeves and a woollen hat on his head even though it was like 45*C and I was personally on the brink of dying... some people are resilient to it I guess... But I tearred up a bit thinking of their destiny... all young people, dirty from travel, not criminals, just young people trying to escape hell and ending up lost in some unknown country :(

      You can send me tea, dahlink, as we said :) I have two VICIOUS episodes so far, and will have the third one later this week too :) Ian and Derek were in a gym in the second one :) And in the third one they're taking dancing lessons

    4. They're taking dancing lessons! Oh that will be rich!

      Not sure if I have your email anymore so get mine from my post and we can swap addresses.

  4. That would be pretty depressing to finally make your way home and find out your loved one has amnesia.

  5. Wow - Coming Home sounds pretty powerful!

  6. Coming Home sounds dark, but very touching, too. I'm watching a movie from 2014 (The Other Woman) right now, though...so I'm a little behind on my movie watching!

  7. I tend to go for quieter films, rather than action, so Coming Home looks marvelous. The music in the trailer is also beautiful.

    1. just imagine if you forgot Jason was your hubby :) Like, I have amnesia we're not married, you must court me again by buying me a new ring.. and then you repeat it the next day again :)

    2. Some day's I'd like to forget lol. Just kidding ;) That would be truly awful, but if that were ever to happen, I'm sure neither of us would give up on the other, no matter how hard it got. I am terrified of getting Alzheimer Disease. It would be so tragic to forget the faces of those I love!

    3. it reminds me of that film that Channing had a few years ago in which that godawful Rachel McAdams plays his wife who forgets they're married after an accident and he has to vow and charm her all again. As if it takes a lot with that body of his :)

GIVE SOME LOVE TO YOUR DEZZY :)
