I’ve been revisiting the beautiful 2006 movie The Painted Veil, based on Somerset Maugham’s 1920s novel and starring Naomi Watts and Ed Norton; both visually stunning and wonderfully performed, I recommend this film if you haven’t seen it. The scenery is so breathtaking, every time I watch it I want to travel to rural China.
And I really want the first (English) edition pictured below (bit out of my price range though, eep).
