December 7 - December 14, 2006

Zhang Yimou's epic wraps Chow Yun-fat and Gong Li in miles of crackling gold decor and sets them at each others' throat as the world's most dysfunctional Imperial family.

Film Forum hosts the victory lap of Thai auteur, Wisit Sasantieng's, first movie, the eye-popping TEARS, bought by Miramax in 2001 and locked away ever since. Kudos to Magnolia for setting it free.

A GOOD LAWYER'S WIFE (2003, Korea, 103 minutes)

Introduced by Im Hyun-Ock, this Korean picture was a scandalous success about infidelity. A lawyer and his wife have put their relationship out to pasture and are both cheating on each other, but when a tragedy arises they have to make a decision: married or not. Good looking, well acted and pretty darn sexy.
