Pavilion of Women

Critics Consensus

Generating more suds than a soap opera, this adaptation of Pearl Buck's novel sinks under the weight of excess melodrama, stilted performances, and cheesy dialogue.

    A beautiful movie! Love John Cho in this!! Willem Dafoe gives an interesting performance as a foreigner in love with a wife from a noble Chinese family. I've seen this movie several times over, and I can never get bored of it.
