Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Wo hu cang long

Directed by Ang Lee
China, Hong Kong, 2000
Action, Romance, Fantasy


In 18th Century China, when a nefarious thief steals a prized sword, a passionate female warrior joins forces with a young female aristocrat in a quest for justice.

Our take

When Taiwanese director Ang Lee left Hollywood to uncharacteristically make a wuxia film in China, he ended up with a Best Foreign Film Oscar. In so doing, he introduced the thrills of the genre to unfamiliar audiences, made a superstar of Zhang Ziy, and crafted a lovely and moving romance as well.
