FILE - In this Dec. 22, 2010 file photo, Chinese director Zhang Yimou smiles during a press conference to promote his new movie in Beijing. He's tackled rural drama, kung fu choreography and period epic over a 23-year career that has made him Chinese cinema's top names. But Zhang Yimou says his recent production starring Christian Bale has been one of his toughest. Zhang finished shooting his adaptation of the Yan Geling novel "The 13 Women of Nanjing" at a studio near the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing on Wednesday, June 22, 2011. (AP Photo/Alexander F.
