Chen Kaige, part of the group of filmmakers known as the Fifth Generation, has made his imprint on both Chinese and world cinema. His early films helped mark the beginning of a “Chinese New Wave” that brought Chinese cinema to international prominence. His later films, reflecting the new commercial environment of the 1990s, tended to balance art and entertainment.
