I’m looking for a movie set 1 or 2 centuries ago.
This movie was shown ~20 years ago but it may be older. It wasn’t in shades of grey.
I think it was a romance between a Chinese woman and a European man. All I can remember is that the plot took place in China and at the end of the story the woman gets executed by beheading. The actual beheading isn’t shown but is suggested by the fact that the feather she had between her hands is cut off.
