Product Overview

An exciting Chinese interpretation of The Phantom of the Opera! Ten years after supposedly being killed in an opera house, Song Danping returns to tell his story - when he fell in love with the daughter of a rich feudal lord, he was beaten, disfigured with acid and left to die in the burning opera house by her father. He's been waiting in the rebuilt theatre for someone to take over his artistic mantle and he's chosen the opera troupe's new young star.

ReviewSource CineSpot
Review Song at Midnight is the original version of Ronny Yu's Phantom Lover (1995, starring Leslie Cheung). It is also one of the early representatives of cult films coming out from China. If you are a fan of Western monster movies like Dracula or Frankenstein, you should definitely check it out...Deviating from the mainstream direction, Ma Xu Wei-bang's Song at Midnight is a product from another dimension. Although the enormous reference of Western cinema and culture has made him an easy target for plagiarizm, what should not be ignored is Ma Xu's extraordinary talent and manipulation over his materials. With a strong knowledge of the cinematic language, Ma Xu had created some of the most notorious yet exciting cult movies that are rarely seen in the diaspora of Chinese cinema.
