Jasmine Women


Actor : Zhang, Zi Yi Chen, Chung Joan Jiang, Wen

Jasmine Women (China Version)
Jasmine Woman, a film whose release date was put off for 3 years until 2006, stars Zhang Ziyi in three different roles, which is quite a challenge to her. The film features a star-studded cast, including Joan Chen (Saving Face), Liu Ye (Lan Yu, The Promise), Lu Yi (Seven Swords), and Jiang Wen (Devils on the Doorstep, Red Sorghum). The movie is adapted from the novel Women's Life by the famous writer Su Tong, whose literary works have been turned to many films, among them Zhang Yimou's Raise the Red Lantern. Jasmine Woman follows a family whose female members from three different generations all experience frustration in marriage, as if the family is cursed.

In the 1930s, Mo (Zhang Ziyi), brought up by her single mother (Joan Chen), develops a romance with the studio manager (Jiang Wen) and is dumped after she gets pregnant. She blames her daughter Li for all her miseries. In the 1960s, Li can no longer put up with her mother Mo (Joan Chen) and marries a construction worker (Lu Yi). Being impotent, Li adopts a child from the orphan named Hua. In the 1980s, Li suspect that her husband has an incestuous affair with Hua. Her husband commits suicide and Li becomes schizophrenic. Hua's marriage is no better than her mother's or grand mother's - her husband (Liu Ye) finds a mistress and she decides to divorce him although she has already conceived his child...
