Synopsis:
From the Director of Her and House of Flying Daggers, comes a stunning epic about the folly of war and the disintegration of one family under the weight of unrequited love, unforgivable betrayals, and a never-ending thirst for power. On the eve of the Chong Yong Festival, golden flowers fill the Imperial Palace and when the Emperor (Chow Yun Fat) unexpectedly returns to his Empress (Gong Li) and two sons, the tension is clear in his lavish kingdom. His absence has given rise to illicit love affairs, dangerous alliances, and malicious conspiracies; all of which threaten to overthrow his power. However, it may well be the Emperor's own dark secret that threatens him most of all.
As the secrets of the Imperial family unravel against this backdrop of breathtaking opulence and grandeur, an attack on the Palace by myriad armoured warriors results in a spectacular climax wrought and thrilling action and epic tragedy.

Unwatchable! - Curse of the Golden Flower review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
30/03/2010

I usually like these epic Chinese dramas, but I couldn't watch the film as the English subtitles were so small they were practically unreadable. In dialogue heavy scenes the subtitles are so small and moved along at such a pace that it was impossible to read them and with no English language audio track the film was pretty much unwatchable.
