Terracotta Warrior    (1989)
Even if Ching Siu-tung does not manage to find the same attaching tone like in his last movie, the esthetism and the presence of very ostentatious scenes confer to this opposed relation a certain beauty. On the other hand the second part is definheely less convincing, especially because of the character of the young girl who is played by Gong Li and of the tone sometimes heavily burlesque of the film. It remains a very interesting reflexion on the past and the inexorable destroying work of time plunging men and their time in the lapse of memory.
