Abstract

Chinese elements are favored by many Chinese directors to use in films. Such film elements can make literary films or commercial films full of more cultural deposits and values. The Chinese elements in the film will also support more interlocking plots in the film, and they are used in many ways in films, such as martial arts, swordsmanship, calligraphy, color and music. Zhang Yimou uses Chinese elements in his films, even his commercial films are endowed with profound historical and cultural significance because of the Chinese elements. Zhang Yimou’s Hero uses a lot of Chinese elements, color variations or the use of calligraphy, which affects the plot changes of the whole film. Director Zhang Yimou also made his way internationally by using Chinese elements, so that many international friends could understand Chinese culture and the cultural deposits in Chinese films.
