6 Chinese Language Movie / Films You Should Watch!
We recommend our top picks for Chinese language movies you should watch if you are just starting to watch East Asian cinema. To narrow things down we defined this as films from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Even though Hong Kong speaks Cantonese and not Mandarin we consider it as part of the the Chinese cultural sphere. We love so many Chinese, Taiwanese and Hong Kong films so it was hard to narrow it down but here are our picks:
Raise the Red Lantern (1990) Zhang Yimou
To Live (1994) Zhang Yimou
Shaolin Soccer (2001) Stephen Chow
Infernal Affairs (2002) Andy Liu and Alan Mak
Xiao Mei (2018) Maren Hwang
An Elephant Sitting Still (2018) Hu Bo
