(1991) dir Zhang Yimou w/Gong Li, Ma Jingwu, He Caifei
In 1920s China, Songlian (the incomparable Gong Li, appearing in six of the series' seven films) is forced after her father's death to become the fourth wife of Master Chen, a wealthy magnate. Each kept in a separate house on the master's compound, the wives plot against one another as they vie for their husband's attention. Perhaps the best example of the exquisite cinematography and meticulous storytelling for which director Zhang Yimou is known.
