Wives and concubines, seems the same in China. Beautifully crafted-silence, incredible images of a claustrophobic setting where 4 wives have to live together. Competition, cruelty, jealousy and other yucky stuff. Traditions and customs aren’t always a good thing. Well done!

Seen this one long ago before comments was enabled, first released in 1991. Recall that it was a tragic yet beautiful story of women in old China's man's world. On the other hand, the man/master of the house took a back seat to all the women. His face was never shown (right?) as if he was only a prop. The women are the real bosses.

excellent movie! gives the viewer good insight on concubines living in a household together but seperate; and the deadly consequences they face if unfaithful.
