Audience Reviews for Center Stage
The film is based on a biopic of the silent film goddess, a legendary Chinese actress of the 30's. Ruan Ling Yu is a link of the lost Chinese black and white genre and the current cinemagraphy. Many Chinese silent film were either unknown, lost or not well preserved. This film can be quite educating when it comes to Chinese film history. Maggie Cheung's performance deserves an Oscar. The flow of the film can be quite confusing nevertheless it's still a good documentary-liked melodrama. Kinda like the movie Ed Wood.
