The Point of View in Shanghai Triad
With his legendary "golden touch," Zhang Yimou, after a series of successes in the Western film market, presented his first film set in a metropolis -- Shanghai Triad. Kennedy (1995, 4) highlighted the glory the film received at the 45th Cannes Filmfest in 1995, "Then came Zhang Yimou's Shanghai Triad, putting all these other movies and their makers in the shade. 'Just a gangster film,' chorused some hacks, obviously suffering from (film) noir overkill. But if this film is 'just' anything, it is just a masterpiece."
