ZiYi Zhang, Daniel
Wu, Ge You
From director Feng Xiao
Gang and star Zhang Ziyi comes this visually stunning epic drama chronicling the
machinations of a power struggle in the Imperial Court.
The Banquet has been
described as a loose adaptation of "Hamlet"; it is a tale of fate and revenge
set in 10th century China. A new Emperor has usurped the throne through murder.
Zhang Ziyi plays the widowed Empress, who marries the new
Emperor (Ge You) only to protect herself, but also secretly plots his death with
the help of the Crown Prince (Daniel Wu) and the Chief Minister
(Ma Jingwu). Yet the Prince and Minister each have their own plans for the
throne, and, of course, so does the Emperor. All these intrigues are brought to
a climax when the Emperor calls for a lavish banquet, where the murderous plans
are set in motion.
