Curse of the Golden Flower

 (2006)

Screenshots from another edition of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon / Curse of the Golden Flower / House of Flying Daggers Trilogy Blu-ray

'Curse of the Golden Flower' fuses high drama and romantic intrigue with the best of contemporary martial arts. Set in the lavish and breathtakingly colorful world hidden from the eyes of mere mortals behind the walls of the Forbidden City, a tale of a royal family divided against itself builds to a mythic climax as lines are crossed, trust is betrayed, and family blood is spilled in the quest for redemption and revenge.

For more about Curse of the Golden Flower and the Curse of the Golden Flower Blu-ray release, see Curse of the Golden Flower Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Curse of the Golden Flower Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sony Pictures does justice to the stunning visuals using the MPEG-4 codec. Watch for tremendous details on armor, fabrics and faces. The resolution reveals the most subtle of facial expressions in extraordinary detail, communicating the full emotion and motives of the actors' words to non- Chinese speaking viewers. Subtitles are sufficient but they by no means communicate the full impact of the dialogue. Watch how facial expressions change when information is shared for faster access to the characters' motives and the subplots.

One feature of 1080p resolution: it fully reveals cheesy CGI effects and unfortunately, Curse of the Golden Flower has its share. All the spears and arrows used in the fight scenes are computer- generated, and it is not a particularly realistic look. Some views of the CGI armies also appear fake and two dimensional, although the detail is there. Depth is generally lacking in this blu-ray, and it may be a combination of cinematography and use of computer animation in some scenes. The sets are generally small, so the shallow videostage focuses more on color richness than on depth.



Curse of the Golden Flower Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

While 20-bit, 96-kHz is more my ideal, the 16-bit, 48-kHz PCM is sufficient for this blu-ray. Voices are rendered with a clear and strong presentation. Tonal cues and vocal inflections, like facial expressions, are strong cues of the characters' motivations and mental state. I actually heard many nuances of Chinese I had not heard before. The soundtrack was of CD quality. Aside from the score and voices, other sounds in the film were not mic'ed convincingly, and had a hard-edge.

It works for me because the quality of the soundtrack really was not a close match to the quality visuals. In some films from Asia, the scores make use of traditional instruments such as the erhu. One of the disturbing trends in films like Curse of the Golden Flower is to abandon Chinese music. Some influence and modern Chinese music remains, but much of the soundtrack was a recording of a synthesizer. To be fair, the film includes use of traditional drums, but they had almost no deep bass impact. The audio was better than DVD quality, but not reference quality.
