House of Flying Daggers


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.'”
