Confucius(DVD-9)(DTSVersion)(ChinaVersion)
S$ 9.70

The great stories of Confucius (551BC-479BC) are brought to life in the 2010 epic historical film made by 5th-generation director Hu Mei and her sparkling cast and crew. Hong Kong superstar Chow Yun Fat has played heroes, gangsters, and all sorts of cool characters throughout his career, but his latest turn as the influential Chinese thinker and wise teacher may just be the pinnacle on his illustrious resume. Chow's subdued but affecting portrayal of Confucius is a breakthrough for himself, and that owes in part to his chemistry with his exceptional co-stars, including Zhou Xun (The Banquet), Lu Yi (Seven Swords), Ren Quan (Assembly), and Qiao Zhenyu (The Book and the Sword). Kudos must also be bestowed on Oscar-winning cinematographer Peter Pau (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) for bringing Chow's Confucius to life on the big screen. Director Hu Mei is best known for her acclaimed historical TV drama series like Yong Zheng Dynasty and The Emperor in Han Dynasty. Here, she has chosen a special angle in tackling the compelling biography of the Great Sage. Set in the chaotic and decadent world of the warring states during the Spring and Autumn Period, the film focuses on the turbulent later years of Confucius's life, specifically from his appointment to political office at 51 to his death at 73, and all the dramatic stories in between. Comes with cast interviews, trailer, and poster and still gallery.

The Grandmaster (Blu-ray)(Japan Version)
S$ 52.30

"Martial arts. Two words: Horizontal and vertical. There's no right and wrong; the last man standing wins." Over a decade in the making, Wong Kar Wai's The Grandmaster is finally here! Initially planned as a biography of Wing Chun Grandmaster Ip Man (Best known as Bruce Lee's master), The Grandmaster has since become an epic drama about three martial artists who walk three very different paths in their road to becoming grandmasters. While the filmmaker touches on familiar themes like unrequited feelings and longing between lonely people, he also tries his hand at new themes by exploring the philosophies behind martial arts and the slow decay of that world's long-standing traditions. To accurately depict the various martial arts schools occupying that world, Wong spent several years visiting martial art masters across China to study the ideological and physical differences between each school. He even recruited martial arts scholar/filmmaker Xu Haofeng (The Sword Identity) to serve as a co-writer of the script. In addition to WKW regular Tony Leung Chiu Wai starring as Ip Man, The Grandmaster also co-stars Zhang Ziyi in a scene-stealing performance as a strong-willed Bagua Quan master, Chang Chen as a mysterious Baji master who wishes to escape his espionage life, Zhao Benshen as a retired grandmaster, Song Hye Kyo as Ip's wife Zhang Yongcheng and Xiao Shenyang as a Hong Kong hoodlum. The three main stars all underwent extensive training in their respective martial arts schools in order to execute the complex action choreography by Yuen Woo Ping (The Matrix, Tai Chi Master). Always the perfectionist, Wong kept the production of the film going for over three years. After the long, delay-filled wait, Wong finally delivered a gorgeous epic that is also one of the most thoughtful explorations of the martial arts world ever put on film. The opening film of the 2013 Berlin Film Festival, the highly anticipated film is also the biggest commercial success of Wong Kar Wai's distinguished career. Hailing from a rich family, Ip Man (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) devoted his life to practicing Wing Chun in the city of Foshan. When Gong Baosen, Chairman of the Chinese Martial Artists Union, decides to mark his retirement with a sparring match in Foshan, Ip is thrust into the limelight as Baosen's chosen opponent. Despite objections by Baosen's daughter Gong Er (Zhang Ziyi), Baosen goes ahead with the match and breaks his family's unbeaten record with a rare loss. Gong Er manages to save her family honor by winning a rematch against Ip, and the two even strike up an unspoken bond in the process. However, the Sino-Japanese War breaks out, causing Ip to lose his family fortune and Baosen's disciple Ma San (Zhang Jin) to turn to the Japanese for self-preservation. While Ip struggles to care for his family, Gong Er makes a major sacrifice in the name of revenge. Meanwhile, a mysterious man named The Razor (Chang Chen)

Kaneko Misuzu's celebrated works revealed a warm and gentle soul that spoke to the children of her era. Sadly, Misuzu died in 1930 at the young age of twenty-six, leaving many questions and a body of excellent work. Sho Igarashi's film delves into the life of Kaneko Misuzu during the early twentieth century, and shows how her love of writing grew through her work at a bookstore, and through her experiences with early literary success and a forbidden love with her own cousin. But the trials of life and love took their toll on the young artist, and her tragic end at such a young age came as a result of an unwarranted disease transmitted by her philandering husband. Finally, on one spring night, a fateful decision is undertaken by the artist herself, forever creating a legacy of a budding artist lost at the height of her creative powers. Featuring potent human drama, stunning images, and a vivid recreation of the Taisho era, Misuzu is a fascinating and loving look at a revered Japanese artist.

Mei Ah Confucius (VCD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version) at 9.10 SGD from YesAsia
Mei Ah Confucius (VCD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
S$ 9.10
YesAsia
The great stories of Confucius (551BC-479BC) are brought to life in the 2010 epic historical film made by 5th-generation director Hu Mei and her sparkling cast and crew. Hong Kong superstar Chow Yun Fat has played heroes, gangsters, and all sorts of cool characters throughout his career, but his latest turn as the influential Chinese thinker and wise teacher may just be the pinnacle on his illustrious resume. Chow's subdued but affecting portrayal of Confucius is a breakthrough for himself, and that owes in part to his chemistry with his exceptional co-stars, including Zhou Xun (The Banquet), Lu Yi (Seven Swords), Ren Quan (Assembly), and Qiao Zhenyu (The Book and the Sword). Kudos must also be bestowed on Oscar-winning cinematographer Peter Pau (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) for bringing Chow's Confucius to life on the big screen. Director Hu Mei is best known for her acclaimed historical TV drama series like Yong Zheng Dynasty and The Emperor in Han Dynasty. Here, she has chosen a special angle in tackling the compelling biography of the Great Sage. Set in the chaotic and decadent world of the warring states during the Spring and Autumn Period, the film focuses on the turbulent later years of Confucius's life, specifically from his appointment to political office at 51 to his death at 73, and all the dramatic stories in between.

A meaningful biography can serve as a great teacher, offering valuable life lessons and teaching readers to be like the subject or sometimes, not to be like the subject. Fictional stories make for fun reads as well, but nothing is as compelling and inspirational as real-life recollections of one’s life. Noteworthy biography recommendations that everyone should own, or at least read about, are mentioned below.
