Wo hu cang long

Ang Lee China, 2000

Enrico Green's rating of the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

the martial arts scenes are breathtaking but the real strength of the story is the silent, forbidden love between Michelle Yeoh and Chow Yun-Fat. you can feel the secret longing hiding underneath their calm controlled exteriors. the story manages to fit in love, teenage rebellion and family intersperse with amazing kung-fu scenes. perhaps the most meditative kung-fu movie ever.
