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
