What movies in mandarin do you recommend?



it depends what kind of movie you prefer.


have you ever see 大上海 / The Last Tycoon? 

1) 大红灯笼高高挂 Raise the Red Lantern (1991)

This is a classic movie telling very interesting story of amazing Chinese traditions; and they talk mandarin very  clear, not difficult to understand even for beginners

2)  红高粱 Red Sorghum (1988)

from the same movie director Yimou Zhang, very famous; by the novel of Nobel prize winner Yan Mo

3) if you like kung fu movies, you  can watch these

叶问 Ip Man (2008)

霍元甲  Fearless (2006)

英雄 Hero (2002)

In my opinion, these three are the best

4) My favorite movie is 

Se, jie Lust, Caution (2007)

from Taiwanese director Ang Lee. I fascinate of this movie, but I'm not sure if they speak mandarin. May be Shanghainese or Taiwanese
