The Swordsman in Double Flag Town

Shuang-Qi-Zhen daoke

Directed by He Ping
China, 1991
Adventure, History


Exceptional in quality and style among Chinese wuxia films. It is no coincidence that this was filmed after the Tiananmen clampdowns. Unique characters, atmospheric images of vast, dusty lands, and a happy marriage between 5th Generation cinema and the Western.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
