    Empire of Silver is one of the best films I've ever seen. The gigantic scene of places, houses, and antique ancient world of China just 100 plus years ago moved me to tears. The promotion of two word adage in business from the movie is "kind and righteous" which should be displayed in the USA in a prominent place on all Websites. This is a great movie. It is a 10. I would urge every one of you to watch this movie asap. It is showing in the USA cities.
    Hurry! Go figure! Go Watch!

    The movie is occasionally muddled and always melodramatic, yet it's pictorially compelling, thanks to dramatic locations and exacting art direction.

    An historical drama so swamped by its soap opera crescendos, no resonant story can survive the wet.

    The most interesting threads aren't political but personal, with a melodramatic romance providing some well-earned tears. Your final thoughts, however, are likely to concern Jennifer Tilly, who's so bizarrely miscast as a severe missionary that her presence becomes its own distraction.
