YesAsia Editorial Description
Magnificent is an apt description for this ostentatious, yet bittersweet Shaw Brothers spectacle, as it has won fans among audiences and critics alike. At the very first Golden Horse Awards in 1962, The Magnificent Concubine picked up several awards, including Honorable Mention for Dramatic Feature, Best Editing, and Best Sound Recording. And at the 15th Cannes Film Festival that same year, the film was awarded the Grand Prix de la Commission Superieure Technique du Cinema Francais!
The DVD from Celestial/IVL features the extra, "The Savant: Li Han Hsiang."

Director: Li Han Hsiang
Many screen versions have been made of this classic Chinese love story, but auteur Li Han-hsiang's version is the most popular of them all. Yen Chuan plays the weak emperor, whose obsession with his consort, Yang Kwei Fei (played by the ever-elegant and ever-sensual Li Li-hua) makes him leaves the running of the country to his Prime Minister (Yang Chi-ching), who happens to be Yang Kwei Fei's brother. Unfortunately, the cruel and selfish Prime Minister's decisions leave the empire in shambles. "Magnificent" is the only word that could describe this exquisite production.

Beautiful and Sensual
|The Magnificent Concubine is a beautiful production with excellent photography. Actress Li Lihua is delightfully sensuous in her beauty. She is pampered, wilful but cares for her King enough to sacrifice herself. This is a short love story, originally planned as part of a 4-story movie, but presumably the idea was shelved. The great acting by Li Lihua holds this movie together.|
