films about China’s revolutions?

Hi all,

A colleague has asked me to recommend Chinese films about China’s revolutions (1911, 1949, etc.). Is the ‘Founding of a Republic’ (Jianguo daye, 2009) a good example? Is there another film — perhaps less propaganda-style — that people would recommend? Are any of these films actually entertaining?
