In addition to App of the week, (almost) every Thursday Apple chooses a Movie of the week, whose purchase is only $ 3. The title selected this time was The Tiger and the Dragon, by Ang Lee.
Check out his trailer:
Here's what Apple says about the movie:
After making his mark in Hollywood with several successful films in English, director Ang Lee, a Taiwanese native, had one of his biggest international successes with this long spike. Like the best martial arts films, The Tiger and the Dragon are more than just action sequences. Ang Lee's heroes and heroines defy the limitations of human mobility and fly through scenes of escape and struggle full of style and grace. The film is devastating in all categories, starting with breathtaking cinematography, excellent fighting choreographies, a chilling soundtrack and a beautiful love story. While Hong Kong's charismatic and veteran movie stars, Chow Yun-Fat and Michelle Yeoh, are essential to the film's success, Zhang Ziyi's brilliant performance which, thanks to his kinetic intensity, has become an international star. The film was nominated for ten Oscars and won four, including that of Best Foreign Film and Best Soundtrack for composer Tan Dun.
As usual, our reader Renato Alan Promenzio (@tripalavra), who is a cardholder, was also willing to send us a personalized comment about the film:
O Movie of the week since Oscar in the category of Best Foreign Film, BAFTA at MTV Movie Awards. I am not particularly a fan of the genre, but I give my arm to root for some points of O Tigre e Drago such as photography, costumes and art direction. I also like the actor Chow Yun-Fat, films like The Corruptor and Ana and the King. Let's be fair: the film changed the concept of oriental films that we go to the Band on Sundays night and became a landmark for cinema.
