YesAsia Editorial Description

One loved money, one loved power, and one loved China...

Maggie Cheung, Michelle Yeoh, and Vivan Woo play three of the most famous women in contemporary Chinese history in Mabel Cheung's award-winning The Soong Sisters. Educated in the United States, sisters Soong Ai Ling, Soong Ching Ling, and Soong Mei Ling were modern, forward-thinking women born in the turbulence of the Chinese civil war period. Seeing the world in different ways, each sister resolutely walked her own path and marked her name in Chinese history. Married to three of the most powerful men in China, the Soong Sisters wielded unprecedented wealth and power, but revolution would tear apart their country and their family.

Practical and resourceful, the eldest sister Ai Ling (Michelle Yeoh) married H.H. Kung, the richest man in the country. She had little concern for ideology and politics, other than their effects on business and family. The idealistic Ching Ling (Maggie Cheung) married Sun Yat-sen, the founder of modern China. Widowed at a young age, she selflessly dedicated her entire life to bettering the lives of her countrymen. The clever and forceful Mei Ling (Vivian Woo) married generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek, placing her at odds with sister Ching Ling, and eventually fled China for Taiwan in the aftermath of the revolution.

Blu Ray review Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The Blu Ray remaster finally gives this excellent film the treatment it deserves. I am very pleased with this edition. The video quality is superb. Images are sharper and colors are richer. The audio shows improvement as well. This version heightens the viewing experience of this masterpiece and is a vast improvement over the DVD I've watched for the last ten years. Well done!

You wouldn't want to miss this Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The first time I watched "THE SOONG SISTERS" was when it was shown in the theaters made possible by the Chinese Community. It was a movie shown on standing room only for several weeks. I got my first copy in VCD and it was passed on to many friends who wanted to see the movie. Now that the movie is available on DVD9, I again got myself a copy as this is, indeed, a movie worth watching over and over again.

Heavy as history can be Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Perhaps romanticized for the film industry but an artsy, drama for a lesson in recent history. I don't think you can find a better cast that respectfully presents &/or represents each sisters' story & relationship with each other. A powerhouse of actresses; you can practically feel or relive what it was like for the sisters themselves.
