Movie begins at dusk.
House of Flying Daggers
Near the end of the Tang Dynasty, police deputies Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro) and Leo (Andy Lau) tangle with Mei (Ziyi Zhang), a dancer suspected of having ties to a revolutionary faction known as the House of Flying Daggers. Completely bowled over by Mei's alluring beauty, the deputies concoct a plan to save her from capture, with Jin leading her north on a perilous journey into the unknown. Zahang Yimou directs this film of excitement, intrigue, glorious action, romance and astonishing physical images; interiors of ornate elaborate richness, costumes of bizarre beauty, landscapes of mountain ranges and meadows, fields of snow, banks of autumn leaves and a bamboo grove that functions like a kinetic art installation.
