Ju Dou (DVD, 2006)
About this product
An erotic tale of forbidden love as an embittered and impotent factory owner's battered bride and his overworked nephew secretly maintain a relationship until it seems murder is the only only way to be together freely. Ultimately, JU-DOU addresses the problems of China's feudal society in the 1920s. Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, and other major filmmakers spoke out against Chinese officials who attempted to censor the film and keep it out of theaters.

Good movie, horrible picture.
This is one of the best Chinese drama I have seen. However, the recording is so horrible. It looks like a pirated movie; someone was recording the picture on his cell phone video camera and reproduced it at home.
