FBA: The Lady review
Bitty biopic of Aung San Suu Kyi is too much hagiography, too little big-screen drama.
Good-looking production values and noble intentions aren't enough to makeThe Lady speak as either a human or political drama.

Taiwanese-born, Stateside-reared, Beijing-based helmer Dayyan Eng makes a clear if uneven attempt to craft a pic that's both China- and America-friendly with "Inseparable," a comic examination of a man's turning-30 crisis.

Chen said at the press conference that the reason for him to choose this subject was because there are few movie projects in China that focus on the problems that are accompanying the development of modern Chinese society.

Set in the last years of Qing dynasty, the movie tells the tale of a court that is facing domestic strife and foreign aggression. In order to suppress the rebellion, a ton of gold is raised by the local government to purchase military supplies. Unexpectedly, the gold is stolen, so the court dispatches military forces to investigate. Thus two factions are formed, which are set to inevitably clash.
