Summary When The Arch opened in Paris, it received the most consistently positive reviews of any film to ever play in the "city of light". Set in 17th Century China, this film is considered the first art film in the Chinese language. Deals with the sexual repression of a beautiful widow..."the ludicrousness of mankind, the futility of intelligence."
