Zhou Xun (born October 18, 1974) is a Chinese actress and singer who has won "Best Actress" at the Hong Kong Film Awards, Golden Bauhinia Awards, Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards, Golden Horse Awards, Golden Rooster Awards, Hundred Flowers Awards, Festival du Film de Paris, Shanghai Film Critics Awards, Beijing College Student Film Festival and Asian Film Awards, among others. She is regarded as one of the "Four Dan Actresses" of China.


Le grand public la découvre dans le film Suzhou River pour le lequel elle obtient, en 2000, le prix de la meilleure actrice au Festival du film de Paris. En 2002, elle joue dans Balzac et la petite tailleuse chinoise.

Si elle a mis plus de temps à se révéler que Zhang Ziyi, Zhou Xun est aujourd'hui considérée comme l'une des plus grandes actrices chinoises. La plupart des critiques à son égard sont positives. Son jeu d'acteur est relativement riche comme le montre sa prestation dans La Légende du scorpion noir, où elle incarne l'innocence, et son rôle dans Painted Skin : un esprit maléfique cruel...

Elle a réellement connu la consécration en 2005 avec le film Perhaps Love, où elle partageait la vedette avec Takeshi Kaneshiro. Aujourd'hui très demandée, la belle est à l'affiche de trois longs métrages en 2008 (Painted Skin, She Ain't Mean et The Equation of love and death).

En 2009, elle a été couronnée meilleure actrice d'Asie pour son rôle dans le film de Tsui Hark "All about women". Sans avoir suivi de formation cinématographique, Zhou Xun se distingue des autres par son approche intuitive de la comédie, ce qui lui a valu de crever l'écran dans des films comme Balzac et la petite tailleuse chinoise, La Légende du scorpion noir ou encore Painted Skin.

En parallèle à sa carrière d'actrice, elle est aussi chanteuse : elle compte déjà deux albums à son actif et a participé aux BO de plusieurs films comme Perhaps Love ou La Légende du scorpion noir.

During the early 20th century, China is marked by political disunity and a handful of individuals, including Mao Zedong, Li Dazhao, and Zhou Enlai, envision a unified China, especially in the political crises that followed the 1911 Xinhai Revolution, which ended centuries of dynastic rule in the country.

En 200 000 ans d'existence, l'homme a rompu l'équilibre sur lequel la Terre vivait depuis 4 milliards d'années. Réchauffement climatique, épuisement des ressources, extinction des espèces : l'homme a mis en péril sa propre demeure. Mais il est trop tard pour être pessimiste : il reste à peine dix ans à l'humanité pour inverser la tendance, prendre conscience de son exploitation démesurée des richesses de la Terre, et changer son mode de consommation.
