One of the greatest of all Chinese films, Fei’s dissection of an already troubled relationship rocked by the visit, after many years, of the husband’s best friend – who, it turns out, was the wife’s lover before she married – makes supremely eloquent use of the couple’s home (complete with courtyard) and a landscape ravaged by years of war. The erotic tension is superbly sustained.

Also available on BFI Player.
