Hello and welcome to The Chinese Cinema Blog!
We aim to ultimately become the go to English language source for reviews and news from the world of Chinese cinema, but we’re just starting up, so thanks for dropping by.
For a lot of Western moviegoers, Chinese cinema has probably only briefly entered their consciousness, most likely through the big budget wuxia films of the previous decade such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (臥虎藏龍) and Hero (英雄). If not this kind, perhaps others will associate the films from the heyday of Hong Kong cinema, a youthful Jackie Chan, Chow Yun-Fat flying across the screen. Then of course, for many people the words “Chinese cinema” will conjure up nothing whatsoever.
That’s where this blog comes in! We hope this blog will be able to help anyone discover and learn more about this truly varied and amazing cinema, no matter what kind of film you like.
