The Arch Still


One of the most important female filmmakers in Hong Kong cinema history, Tong Shu-shuen explores hidden desires and morality in ancient China from a modern perspective in her astonishing directorial debut. Set in a rural village in China's southwest region during the 17th century, the period drama stars Lisa Lu as Madame Tung, a widow who finds herself falling for the same man as her daughter.

Constrained by the traditional values that have defined her life, Madame Tung gives up her pursuit of love and receives a "chastity arch" from the imperial palace. Featuring a powerfully restrained performance by Lisa Lu and evocative images by legendary Indian cinematographer Subarata Mitra, Tong's critically acclaimed film won four prizes at the Golden Horse Awards and was chosen as Hong Kong's representative at the Academy Awards that year.
