Synopsis

Watch: 红高粱 1988 123movies, Full Movie Online – In 1930s China a young woman is sent by her father to marry the leprous owner of a winery. In the nearby red sorghum fields she falls for one of his servants. When the master dies she finds herself inheriting the isolated business..
Plot: An old leper who owned a remote sorghum winery dies. Jiu’er, the wife bought by the leper, and her lover, identified only as “my Grandpa” by the narrator, take over the winery and set up an idealized quasi-matriarchal community headed by Jiu’er. When the Japanese invaders subject the area to their rule and cut down the sorghum to make way for a road, the community rises up and resists as the sorghum grows anew.

more colorful than the title suggests
The much heralded renaissance of New Chinese Cinema can be an acquired taste to many Western filmgoers, but this handsome period piece (directed by the cinematographer of ‘Yellow Earth’, 1984) is livelier and more accessible than most. Part folk tale, part historical drama, it tells the story of a young virgin (sold by her father into marriage with a wealthy leper, in return for a mule), who after her husband’s mysterious death continues to run his successful vineyard, with help from her loyal wedding bearers. And yet for all its undeniable physical beauty and colorful action the film can be a dry experience, at least until the outbreak of the second Sino-Japanese War in the 1930s. With the Japanese occupation some emotional urgency finally breaks through the film’s mantle of reserve, which up to that point had marked even the more bawdy episodes of communal singing and drinking.

Better Than Most Hollywood Films – Red Sorghum
Although rough around the edges for a Zhang Yimou film (he would become consummately polished in his later films), Red Sorghum is still a pretty good tale of life in rural China during the Japanese occupation.

Gong Li, as usual, is magnificent, since she was the Meryl Streep of China, with the body and talent of Sophia Loren combined. This is not her best work; but that is like saying The Devil Wears Prada is not Meryl Streep’s best work. This film is similar to Ju Dou; which also portrays Gong Li in a conflicted relationship with a working-class farmer. But the story is very different. Much better than the average Hollywood film.
