Dear Foreign Films,

As i dont know the best way to get ahold of you, but somehow the same Director is posted twice, one under, http://www.foreignfilms.com/person.asp?person_id=38030 and the other under http://www.foreignfilms.com/person.asp?person_id=1066 but these two are the same person. Thanks. Massada

It should be Zhang Yimou and NOT the other way around.
Yimou is the surname, not the given name.
Apparently people here are taking the credits from the IMDb without realizing that they switch the names around
for Asians.
Asians refer to themselves last name first and first name last, however their first name is STILL their first name
and we do not live in the east.
This is no different from "Bond, James Bond"
It's James Bond, not Bond James, likewise its Akira Kurosawa, not Kurosawa Akira.
