Happy Times: film by Zhang Yimou

Just watched Happy Times by Zhang Yimou. Chinese film in Mandarin with English subtitles billed as a bittersweet comedy. I'd recommend it but as with almost all Chinese films I find there's more bittersweet than comedy. Poignant. Zhang Yimou also did "Judou" and "Raise the Red Lantern" starring Gong Li. Both are fantastic although my favourite would be "Judou" as I can still remember how beautiful the photography was.
