The Pillow Book - Vivian Wu (1996) - Chinese Permanent Cemetery, Tsuen Wan

This appears to be a popular place to film because we've already seen it used in Yellowthread Street, Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, Contagion and now The Pillow Book. There was a nice sweeping view of the channel between Tsuen Wan and Tsing Yi Island, but Greenaway has ruined the view with his 'artistic' habit of overlaying the screen with multiple boxes, so the following just shows the cemetery.

There's also a scene later on when the publisher sends his men back to exhume the body, but this was quite obviously a studio shot with a back projection so I haven't bothered including it - it didn't really show much anyway.
