◼︎ Synopsis
Farewell My Concubine is based on the eponymous novel by Lillian Lee Pik-Wah. The story narrates how Cheng Dieyi (played by Leslie Cheung) is sold at a young age to a Beijing opera company to play Qingyi (virtuous lady) roles. He and his fellow actor Duan Xiaolou (Zhang Fengyi) become famous for performing in the play Farewell My Concubine; but what happens onstage takes on a reality of its own, as Dieyi is trapped within tortured emotions, both real and illusory. The movie demonstrates its lead characters’ steadfast dedication to traditional Chinese arts; but it extends from there to also portray the transfiguration of history and culture across an important era, and the urges and lives that these created. The deep cultural meaning contained within the film is full of vast and finely-drawn emotions.
