Hear what critics have to say about the film:
“Visually stunning and dramatically surprising, Christina Yao’s Empire of Silver is a self-assured debut film that manages to be epic in scale and intimate in focus.” —
Marshall Fine, The Huffington Post
“As a period evocation, Christina Yao’s ambitious feature debut “Empire of Silver” is flawless, richly and authentically detailed and superbly photographed.” —
Kevin Thomas, LA Times
“Yao keeps one eye on the specific and one eye on the general and is able to tell a story that has emotional immediacy, while always illuminating and refracting off the world outside.” —
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
