AllMusic Review by

For his third lushly photographed martial-arts film, CURSE OF THE GOLDEN FLOWER, Zhang Yimou once again collaborated with Japanese composer Shigeru Umebayashi, who created the music for the Chinese director's lauded HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS. Umebayashi's orchestral pieces fittingly echo the sweeping drama and stunning visuals of the movie, as best revealed in the Wagnerian "Rebellion" and the percussive "Heroic Battle."
