"Forever Enthralled" is to open on December 5

A movie about renowned Peking Opera artist Mei Lanfang, starring actress Zhang Ziyi of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" fame and Hong Kong star Leon Lai, is to open here on Friday, the China Film Group Corp. said.

 

"Forever Enthralled" depicts the life and career of Mei, a contemporary of Charlie Chaplin.

 

Mei (1894-1961), a household name in China, was the first artist to spread Peking Opera to the rest of the world. He was also known in China for his patriotic refusal to perform from 1937,when Beijing was occupied by the Japanese, until 1945 when the war was over.

 

The movie was directed by Chen Kaige, who is known for his Palme d'Or-winning movie "Farewell My Concubine" in 1993.
