* ColorMotif: Striking and heavily symbolic use of color is considered to be part of Zhang's SignatureStyle -- the color-coded armies ''Film/CurseOfTheGoldenFlower'' and ''Film/TheGreatWall'' for example. Besides his {{wuxia}} films, ''Raise the Red Lantern'' is also a striking example.

Zhang Yimou (张艺谋, 1951- ) is one of the leading lights of Chinese film and is often considered one of the greatest living directors. He tends to favor stories set in rural/historical China, often with an emphasis on the dark side of the setting, and also has a very strong visual style. Many of his movies contain remarkable SceneryPorn even within quite restricted settings. Was romantically involved with Creator/GongLi for a number of years and featured her, and later Creator/ZhangZiyi as leads in many of his films.
