The thread about Pan's Labyrinth made me think about which fantastical/ghost films I'd enjoyed the most and - of all such (live action) films from East Asia that I've seen - Rouge has to be the one that I enjoyed the most.

Anyone else seen it? Anyone else rate it as highly as I?

It's a beautiful film. One of the few made at that time which actually used Hong Kong's own history for something other than the backdrop to Jackie Chan falling on his head (not that I don't appreciate those movies as well). I love how the film's sense of nostalgia is not for lost cultural traditions but for a lost sense of romance - lamenting that in modern Hong Kong nobody has the time for doomed, tragic love affairs. The ending makes me cry every time as well.

Possibly my favourite Hong Kong film of the 80s, but my opinion will probably change next time I watch 'Peking Opera Blues' again.

You might want to check out Centre Stage by the same director.
