Der unbedarfte, aber zupackende Trucker Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) sieht sich in der Pflicht, seinem chinesischen Freund Wang Chi (Dennis Dun) zu helfen, der in San Franciscos Chinatown ein Restaurant betreibt. Denn der böse David Lo Pan (James Hong) hat die Verlobte (Suzee Pai) Wang Chis entführt. Was zunächst nach einem ganz gewöhnlichen Verbrechen aussieht entpuppt sich als übersinnliches Abenteuer, da David Lo Pan keineswegs ein sterblicher Mensch, sondern ein uralter Geist ist, der die Entführte für ein bizarres Ritual braucht. Jack und Wang Chi wissen, dass sie die Aufgabe nicht alleine bewältigen können. Deswegen nehmen sie die Unterstützung des magisch begabten Touristenbusfahrers Egg Shen (Victor Wong), der Anwältin Gracie (Kim Cattrall), der Reporterin Margo Litzenberger (Kate Burton) und des Kellners Eddie Lee (Donald Li) in Anspruch, um David Lo Pan unschädlich zu machen und die Verlobte Wang Chis zu befreien.

Set in a remote Buddhist monastery in 16th Century China, Raining in the Mountain deals with a power struggle that ensues when the Abbot of the Three Treasures Temple announces his imminent retirement. The ageing Abbot invites three outsiders to advise him on the critical choice of appointing his successor: Esquire Wen, a wealthy patron of the monastery, General Wang, commander-in-chief of the local military, and Wu Wai, a respected lay Buddhist master. Within the monastery, several disciples aspiring to the position begin to collude individually with Esquire Wen and General Wang. But these two invited advisers have come with seditious intent, scheming to obtain the priceless scroll housed in the monastery: the scriptural text of “The Mahayana Sutra,” hand-copied by Tripitaka. Meanwhile, convicted criminal Chiu Ming has arrived at the monastery to atone as a monk. He is assigned to safeguard the scroll at the house of scriptures, and encounters thieving rivals White Fox who poses as Esquire Wen’s concubine and General Wang’s fearsome Lieutenant Chang, who originally framed Chiu Ming for the crime he did not commit. Selected as one of the Best 100 Chinese Motion Pictures by the Hong Kong Film Awards in 2005, The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present King Hu's Raining in the Mountain on Blu-ray and DVD for the first time in the UK, from a new 2K restoration completed in 2018 by the Taiwan Film Institute.

Der dreisätzige Zyklus, Ende 1907 komponiert und Anfang 1908 erschienen, bringt eine auffällige Neuerung. Debussy notiert den hochdifferenzierten und bis in die extremen Lagen aufgefächerten Klaviersatz durchgehend auf drei Systemen. Der erste Satz (Cloches à travers les feuilles) mag an ein Totengeläut erinnern, der zweite (Et la lune descend sur le temple qui fut) ein fernes Indien oder auch China beschwören; zu dem dritten (Poissons d'or) wurde Debussy durch eine Lackarbeit mit Goldfischen inspiriert, die in seinem Arbeitszimmer hing. Der Widmungsträger des dritten Satzes, Ricardo Viñes, brachte den Zyklus zur Uraufführung.

YOUR ONLY HOPE IS BUCKAROO BANZAI From the writer of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Big Trouble in Little China comes a pop-sci-fi adventure that defies convention and went on to become one of the cult hits of the 80s. Peter Weller is Buckaroo Banzai, a physicist-neurosurgeon-martial arts master-secret agent-rock star who has just made history with his invention, the Oscillation Overthruster. The Overthruster allows him to travel to the 8th Dimension, but this feat draws the attention of the Red Lectroids, an alien race (led by Christopher Lloyd) who have teamed up with Banzai’s nemesis, the deranged Dr Lizardo (John Lithgow). Lizardo and the Red Lectroids are seeking the Overthruster to take over the world and Banzai, with his team of agents/band musicians, The Hong Kong Cavaliers, must stop them before it’s too late! With strong references to sci-fi and pop culture that span Thomas Pynchon and Orson Welles, Buckaroo Banzai is a film made by fans for fans and counts filmmakers including Wes Anderson and Kevin Smith among its admirers.

Die Liberalisierung in der Volksrepublik China während der Dekade vor den schreck lichen Ereignissen im Juni 1989 war nicht zuletzt durch die Erfahrungen im Umgang mit neuen Formen grenzüberschreitenden Wirtschaftshandelns beeinflußt: Chinesisch-aus ländischen Gemeinschaftsunternehmen. Wie sich allenthalben als Folge der Entwick lungen in Osteuropa zeigt, sind und bleiben Joint Ventures wichtige Instrumente inter nationaler wirtschaftlicher Zusammenarbeit. Veröffentlichungen aus jüngster Zeit ma chen deutlich, daß dies auch nach den Vorfällen am Platz des Himmlischen Friedens für die Volksrepublik China zutrifft. Der vorliegende Band gibt die Einsichten eines von der Stiftung Volkswagenwerk un terstützten Forschungsvorhabens wieder. Seine wesentlichen Ergebnisse haben trotz veränderter politischer Umstände in China nichts an Aktualität und Relevanz für alle diejenigen verloren, die sich mit Joint Ventures in China befassen, sei es als Praktiker oder als Wissenschaftler. Abgesehen von typisch chinesischen Besonderheiten sind diese Ergebnisse von allgemeinem Belang in der Gestaltung von Joint Ventures. Das Forschungsvorhaben entstand in enger Zusammenarbeit mit Vertretern unter schiedlicher Disziplinen der Shanghai Jiao Tong Universität (insbesondere Prof. Pan Bowen -Industrial Foreign Trade -und Prof. XuJiliang -Human Resource Management) und der Technischen Universität Berlin. Beide Universitäten haben große Anstrengun gen unternommen. Der Erfolg des Forschungsvorhabens hing aber auch von den Mittel zuwendungen der Stiftung Volkswagenwerk ab. Zum Mitarbeiterteam der Technischen Universität Berlin gehörten: - Rechtsanwalt Klaus Jakubowski (K. J. ) (Rechtswissenschaften) - Dr. Sophia Scharpf (S. S. ) (Politikwissenschaften) - Dipl. -Ing.

Joyside sind die berühmteste chinesische Indie-Rockband und der Albtraum des chinesischen Mainstreams und der Regierung ein Dorn im Auge.nnGegründet haben sich Joyside in einer billigen, feuchten Kellerwohnung in einem schäbigen Vorort von Peking . Man hing zusammen herum und hörte den ganzen Tag CDs von den Sex Pistols und den Stooges. Als sich die alte Band des Sängers Bian Yuan auflöste, begann er aus Langeweile eigene Songs über das faule Leben eines Trinkers zu schreiben. Damals hatte Bian Yuan, der mit 18 Jahren aus dem 40 Zugstunden entfernten äußersten Westen Chinas nach Peking gekommen war, sein Studium der Anthropologie längst abgebrochen. Irgendwann im Sommer 2001 sagte er aus einer Laune heraus zu seinen Mitbewohnern: Lasst uns eine großartige Punkband gründen . Seitdem gelten Joyside als der Albtraum der chinesischen Mainstream-Gesellschaft, in der sich im Moment jeder nur für den sozialen Aufstieg und die Anhäufung von Wohlstand zu interessieren scheint ... Mehr als 150.000 verkaufte CDs in China. Ihr neues Album entwickelt sich nach mehrmaligen Hören zum absoluten Ohrwurm. Die Konzerte von Joyside sind ein einzigartiges Erlebnis. Der charismatische Sänger Bian Yuan zieht das Publikum in den Bann und war schon in mehreren Filmen zu sehen. Das erste Album gibt es nun auch in Europa, mit 24seitigem Booklet in deutscher, englischer und chinesischer Sprache. Das Album ist zudem ist in der 1.Auflage im farbigen CD-Vinyl-Look erhältlich.
