Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 12/15/2005
3 stars out of 5 -- "Zhang is loveliness incarnate. And the great Michelle Yeoh, her co-star in CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, possesses a touching gravity..."
New York Times - 12/09/2005
"The exquisite Ms. Gong looks like a gift that keeps on giving when trussed up in silk, but she and the film come most alive when her hair tumbles down and she sashays about the okiya, stirring the air with her tremulous rage."
Uncut - 02/01/2006
"As beautiful-looking a film as you'll see....Often magical."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2006
"On the evidence of Marshall's film, the geishas are like highly trained birds kept in intricately woven bamboo cages; they are made temporarily fascinating by the skills of the film's true artists -- its troika of fine leading actresses..."
Widescreen Review - 04/01/2006
"Dion Beebe's gorgeous cinematography is delivered with sharp images..."
