Who? Zhang Ziyi (waifish), Gong Li (jealous)
What’s it about? Girl-fight is much scarier than men squabbling. Men go on pissing matches, girls plot each other’s downfall. Men kiss and make up; women kiss, make up, then make a mental note to ostracize each other. Samurais go on sword fights, geishas stab each other’s backs, then creep secretly into their rival’s Okiya. Scary. -Rhea Catada
