Cry Woman (Chinese: 哭泣的女人; pinyin: Kū qì de nǔ rén) is a 2002 Chinese film directed by Liu Bingjian. It was Liu’s third feature film and like his previous two films, Incense and Men and Women, Cry Woman was not given permission to screen in China.

Cry Woman stars the Beijing Opera star Liao Qin in her first film role.

Despite being banned in China, the film was screened at several international venues, including the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival held in the Czech Republic and in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival. [Wikipedia]
