- Good Friends,
Well, I just got to see "Hero" finally...it took my dear husband giving
it to me for Christmas to get to see it. WOW!!! What a wonderful
movie. All that you alls aid about it was absolutely true. Thanks so
much for your commentary...which encouraged me to ask for it.
The garb and other things were "spot on", according to tomb rubbings and
other artifacts from the period...even the calligraphy was, to the best
of my knowledge, correct for the period. It was very exciting to see a
period of Chinese history that I'd only seen artifacts from portrayed in
a movie. Even the musical instrument that the old musician was playing
in the opening scene was similar to those I had seen at the Sackler
Gallery when they had the show of the instruments found in the tomb of
the Duke of Yu, from about that period.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and that your New Year is
prosperous and filled with good luck!
