YesAsia Editorial Description

Two years after the elegant biopic Forever Enthralled, Farewell My Concubine director Chen Kaige takes on an epic story that has been dubbed the Chinese Hamlet. Sacrifice is based on the Yuan Dynasty play The Orphan of Zhao, which has been reinterpreted multiple times in the west as The Orphan of China. Bringing the story back to China, Chen has made slight changes to his own take on this tale of unspeakable sacrifice and revenge with scenes of spectacle, but he also retains the power of the story by maintaining an intimate focus on its key characters. One of China's most popular actors, Ge You leads a star-studded cast as a doctor who rescues the lone survivor of a massacre at the price of his own family for the sake of revenge. Also joining him are Wang Xueqi (Bodyguards and Assassins), Huang Xiaoming (The Message), Fan Bingbing (Lost in Beijing), and Zhang Fengyi (Red Cliff). Released in the intensely competitive year-end period in 2010, Sacrifice became one of the highest-grossing films of 2010 in China and one of Chen's most commercially successful films.

Jealous of the accomplishments of the Zhao family in the court of Duke Ling, General Tuan (Wang Xueqi) sets off an elaborate plan that leads to the massacre of the Zhao family. Before committing suicide, General Zhao's wife Zhuang (Fan Bingbing) asks family doctor Cheng Ying (Ge You) to help give birth to her son and take him to family friend Gong (Zhang Fengyi). With the help of Han Jue (Huang Xiaoming), Cheng Ying is able to take the baby to temporary safety. However, when Tuan manages to track Cheng Ying down, Cheng Ying convinces his wife to switch his own child with the Zhao baby to protect the bloodline, leading to the death of his family. Raising the Zhao child under Tuan's nose, Cheng Ying carefully plans his revenge...

천하영웅 (DVD) (한국판)

*Screen Format: 2.35 :1 Anamorphic Widescreen
*Sound Mix: Dolby Digital 2.0

*Director: 첸 카이거

[천하영웅] 중국판 햄릿 ‘조씨고아’ 영화화!
첸카이거 감독의 [천하영웅]은 '중국판 햄릿'으로 잘 알려진 고전 [조씨고아]를 영화화한 작품이다. 영화는 엇갈린 운명으로 벼랑 끝에 선 세 남자의 사투를 그린다.

왕족을 몰살한 반란자, 억울하게 죽은 아들의 복수를 위해 일행을 바치는 한 아버지, 자신의 정체를 모른 채 반란자의 양아들로 성장한 왕족의 마지막 후예가 그 주인공이다. 두 베테랑 노장 배우 갈우와 왕학기, 중국의 톱 스타 황샤오밍의 연기 대결이 액션보다 더 주목되는 이유다.

'천하영웅' 판빙빙, 중화권 최고의 미녀배우로 나선다!
'천하영웅'은 중국 영화계의 거장 첸카이거 감독이 메가폰을 잡은 전쟁 액션 블록버스터. 다음달 7일 국내 개봉을 앞두고 있다. 판빙빙은 극중 장희공주 역으로 열연했다.

판빙빙은 조미, 임심여, 소유붕과 함께 출연한 TV시리즈 '황제의 딸'로 데뷔하며 한국에 중국드라마 열풍을 불러일으켰다. 이후 한중일 합작영화 '묵공'에서 액션과 멜로 연기를 훌륭하게 소화해내며 스타로 발돋움했다.

또한 '마이웨이'에서 한국의 장동건, 김인권, 일본의 오다기리 조 등 최고의 배우들과 호흡을 맞추며 연기력을 인정받았다. 현재는 중화권 최고의 미녀배우로 자리매김하고 있다.

2006년 '패션남녀 평선수상식에서 최고의 미인으로 선정된 이후 2011년 광고계 최고인기스타, 2012년 가장 아름다운 10대 잡지 표지모델로 선정되는 등 중국 최고의 미녀스타로 인기를 지키고 있다. 또한 가수와 영화 제작 등 만능 엔터테이너의 면모를 드러내고 있다. [티브이데일리]

천하를 얻기위한 영웅들의 지략과 복수가 시작된다!
기원전 6세기경, 무능한 진나라 영공에게 총애 받고 병권을 갖게 된 간신 도안고는 정무를 관장하던 조순을 시기하여 반란죄를 덮어씌우고 조씨 일가를 몰살시키기에 이른다. 조순의 아들 조삭과 부인 장희 공주는 겨우 화를 면하지만, 조삭은 결국 칼에 맞아 죽고 만다. 얼마 지나지 않아 장희 공주는 아들을 낳고, 아들을 죽이려는 도안고가 찾아오기 전에 시골의사 정영에게 아들을 맡기고 스스로 목숨을 끊는다.
정영은 조씨의 하나 남은 후손인 조삭의 아들을 찾기 위해 혈안이 되어있는 도안고의 눈을 피하기 위해 갖은 노력을 다하는데, 그 과정에서 자신의 친아들인 정발이 조삭의 아들을 대신해 죽게 된다.
아들을 죽인 원수 도안고를 확실하게 복수할 방법을 도모하던 정영은 도안고의 수하로 들어가 조삭의 아들을 자신의 아들인 정발이라고 속이고 도안고의 양아들로 삼게 만든다. 이 모든 사실을 모르는 조삭의 아들은 16세가 될 때까지 정영을 아버지로, 도안고를 양아버지로 삼은 채 두 사람 아래에서 자라게 된다.
그러던 어느 날 자신이 아버지라 알던 사람은 친아버지가 아니며, 양아버지로 따르던 이는 자신의 가족을 몰살한 살인자라는 사실을 갑작스레 알게 되면서 큰 혼란에 빠지게 되는데…

Professional Review of "Sacrifice (DVD) (Korea Version)"

March 28, 2011

This professional review refers to Sacrifice (DVD-9) (DTS) (English Subtitled) (China Version)
Chen Kaige is nothing if not enigmatic. Having directed one of the all time greatest films about Chinese modern history and culture in the classic Farewell My Concubine he went on to helm the risible and environmentally destructive The Promise, all but squandering his reputation in the process. Having edged his way back towards form a couple of years ago with the Chinese opera biopic Forever Enthralled, he returns again with Sacrifice, a character driven historical epic based upon the Yuan Dynasty play The Orphan of Zhao. The film stars top Mainland actor Ge You in the lead, backed by an illustrious supporting cast including Wang Xue Qi (Bodyguards and Assassins), Huang Xiao Ming (The Message), Fan Bing Bing (Lost in Beijing), and Zhang Feng Yi (Red Cliff). The film was a definite comeback hit for Chen, beating off fierce competition to become one of the highest earning Chinese productions of 2010.

The film begins with the envious General Tuan (Wang Xue Qi) setting in motion a complex scheme designed to eliminate the entire Zhao clan, his rivals in the court of Duke Ling. Although Tuan is successful in staging a coup and seizes power for himself, General Zhao's wife Zhuang (Fan Bing Bing) manages to persuade local doctor Cheng Ying (Ge You) to save her newborn son before she kills herself. Unfortunately, although Cheng Ying with the help of Han Jue (Huang Xiao Ming) is able to take the child to safety, before he can get him to the house of Zhao ally Sir Gong (Zhang Feng Yi), he is forced to switch him with his own infant son. Working out that Cheng Ying was the one who escaped with the Zhao child, Tuan attacks Gong's household, unknowingly killing the wrong baby in the process. Biding his time, the doctor takes his place in Tuan's court, raising the boy as his own and plotting to have him take revenge when he reaches manhood.

If the plot of Sacrifice sounds rather convoluted, it is, though in rewarding and highly engaging fashion. Although the film has been likened to Hamlet, and does indeed have overtones of Shakespearian tragedy, it's most likely to bring to mind Chen Kaige's earlier work The Emperor and the Assassin. The two films do have a great deal in common, being complex, character driven affairs that revolve around difficult moral dilemmas and themes of responsibility, guilt, and of course, sacrifice. The film is very convincing in this respect, and sees Chen regaining his position as one of the premier storytellers of Chinese cinema, as he skilfully weaves a web of very human flaws, ambitions and nobility without ever patronising the viewer with easy answers or resorting to cheap melodrama. Thankfully, he also avoids any of the obvious nationalism or compromises which have tended to dilute some of the recent Chinese blockbusters, and the film is pleasingly intelligent and challenging.

The characters are all richly written, with Cheng Ying making for a fascinating protagonist, a man who is by no means brave or selfless, and who ends up taking an increasingly philosophical view on the events which he has become caught up in, despite the fact that his choices have cost him dearly. Even Tuan is a complicated and conflicted figure, capable of kindness as well as great ruthlessness, and though he is clearly the villain of the piece, he comes across as being fated to play the role that he does. Ge You is excellent in the lead and effectively carries the film with a deeply affecting performance, giving the film a moving emotional core, and the rest of the cast are similarly impressive.

Chen's direction sees him adopting a slightly different style to that of his previous historical outings, combining the grounded though intricate cinematography of Farewell my Concubine and Temptress Moon with some of the visual flourishes and flashiness of The Promise. The film mixes the intimate and the epic to great effect, and manages to balance its action and battle scenes with its quieter and more personal aspects. This approach works very well, making it both substantial and artistic, and entertaining on a more basic and accessible level. Packing in plenty of drama and confrontations along with a number of bloody sword scenes, the film moves along at a good pace, and is gripping and exciting right through to its tough and eloquently expressed conclusion.

Sacrifice is not only Chen Kaige's best film for over a decade, but is one of the best Chinese blockbusters of the last couple of years. Proving that it is possible to provide thrills and entertainment without compromising on plot or characters, it offers a powerful and thoughtful slice of tragedy that works on both an epic and intimate scale.
