In ancient China, warring factions plot to assassinate Qin, the most powerful ruler. A nameless warrior arrives at court claiming to have defeated his three greatest enemies: Broken Sword, Flying Snow and Sky. However, inconsistencies arise as his story unfolds.
Shot by legendary cinematographer Chris Doyle as a kind of hallucination, a riot of colour and movement, this Crouching Tiger-style blend of awesome martial arts set pieces, historical drama and tragic romance, is one of the richest and most unforgettable movie experiences of this or any other year.
Nominated, Best Foreign Film, Oscar, 2003
