The Chinese Botanist’s Daughters (2006)
The Chinese Botanist’s Daughters is a French-Canadian movie written and directed by Dai Sijie. Min Li, a trainee botanist is taken in by An’s father. In such a beautiful, but lonely setting where the two are treated badly by the few men they communicate with, the women form a bond which quickly turns to unspeakable love. In a swirl of forbidden passion, love and opiate-induced intoxication they find themselves confronted with a society who will not accept same-sex love, a crime punishable by death. A new trailer has been added.
