The story of two Peking Opera actors and the woman who comes between them provides an intimately detailed story which is set to a constantly shifting backdrop of Chinese politics during the 20th century. The opera setting provides colour and spectacle, and questions how far a man will go for his art; the historical episodes give this Palme d'Or-winning film the flavour of a genuine epic.
