New 4K Restoration!
YIM JI KAU
Hong Kong | 1987 | Stanley Kwan
Here’s a new restoration of one of the greatest and most romantic Hong Kong movies of the past 35 years! Anita Mui plays the ghost of a beautiful Hong Kong courtesan who killed herself in the 1930s. She re-emerges in 1980s Hong Kong to search for her long-lost lover (Leslie Cheung) who somehow survived their suicide pact. It’s a tale of two love stories—and of two cities. “With its lush mise-en-scène and transcendently melancholy mood, this sensuous ghost story is an exquisite, enduringly resonant elegy for both lost love and vanishing history.” –Janus Films. “With its use of overlapping time, its sumptuous and humid colors, and occasional futzing with frame rates to create hyperreal motion, Rouge anticipates the work of Wong Kar-wai.” –Slant Magazine. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 96 min.
General admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D.holders, and those age 25 & under $8.
