his children will grow up to be talented directors. China's Government should make a special exception and pay him 26 million per child. House of Flying Daggers anyone?

If Zhang Yimou can afford it, he'd no doubt not mind to cough up $26million for his 7 children! Discounting China's child laws & considering only that this talented man brought China great honor, surely there is a fair chance his offspring would have inherited some of their father's gifts? If RT's pic above is of Zhang's children, these kids could give the Von Trapp's from Sound of Music a go anytime! Anyway, Zhang looks like a fun father to have & fathering 7 children, he looks the really loving father type. If he pays his $26mil, hope it goes for the education of Chinese orphans & we get to follow their story!

If they were born before 1979 it's all a moot point.
