Abstract

This chapter was solicited to revisit the whole question of whether there is such a thing as a specifically “Chinese” style in cinema. The chapter argues that Chinese cinema (mainland, Hong Kong, and Taiwan) over the decades displays not a style, but a dizzying variety of styles and techniques. Moreover, the numerous innovations found originate neither from Chinese tradition nor do they always cinema elsewhere.
