Funny to have thought t all along that the Chinese Director Zhang Yimou & Yimou Zhang are one and the same, but as posted here each is responsible for a set of different movies...
Is this true?
I'm lost..

One in the same.... people get confused with Chinese names because the surname comes first in written and spoken Chinese. In this case, Zhang is the surname and Yimou is the first name. I will try to get this corrected. Cheers.
