    Farewell My Concubine surely is complicated and dated in the area of sexuality and it is a very long movie, but it mostly doesn't feel too long given its solid pace, strong direction and an emotional first act. The story is flawed, but the characters are memorable and the film is so well shot, scored and epic in scope.

    Love, friendship, betrayal, and desire. Direction and editing are succinct and effective, as the gap between each scene packs as much implication as the scenes themselves. Characters are genuine and sophisticated, with dilemmas between selfish and selfless acts. Acting is incredible across the board, so much so you start to wonder if this movie could be the "chicken or egg" to one of the protagonists' actual real life circumstances.
