House of Flying Daggers (Shi mian mai fu)
Cert: 15 Year: 2004 Length: 119 mins Language: Mandarin
The waning Tang dynasty is torn by unrest, and the police are on the hunt for the leader of the most prominent enemy army, the House of Flying Daggers. A romantic warrior breaks a beautiful member of a rebel army out of prison to help her rejoin her fellows.
Now that he feels comfortable with wuxia, or martial arts movies, following "Hero" - his first foray into the genre, Chinese master Zhang Yimou creates a gem in "House of Flying Daggers".
'It's one of the most magical pieces of story-telling to reach a screen in the past 12 months.'
James Christopher, The Times
