Before my post on Mo Yan, I’ll share this video that has been on my mind for a while. I’m very fascinated with languages and like movies with language realism (like Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ”) and so I’ve been wondering why there aren’t any Chinese movies in the language as it was supposedly spoken 2000 years ago. Recently someone dubbed part of a Chinese TV series to old Chinese and put it up on YouTube. Forget the way modern Chinese sounds, this is nothing like it, but that just adds to the effect. Enjoy!
