Zhang Yimou, 1991, China) is an excellent example of a film that deconstructs how patriarchal power works and in this sense it is a film that is empowering for women, despite being a narrative *about * disempowered women. The film has also been discussed as a metaphor for Chinese state power and therefore also functions a a subversive political commentary.
