House of Flying Daggers

Academy Award nominee: Cinematography

“More emotionally compelling than his martial-arts epic Hero, Zhang Yimou’s House Of Flying Daggers is the story of a love triangle, with a Robin Hood tale and superhuman acrobatic skills, set in China in 858 AD. “A revolutionary group, the House of Flying Daggers, is battling the corrupt Tang government. Andy Lau plays Leo, a local army captain, and Takeshi Kaneshiro his playboy assistant, Jin, who are under pressure to shut the troublemakers down. First stop is the local brothel, where the star attraction is a beautiful blind dancer named Mei (Zhang Ziyi), whose lovely Dance of Echoes segues into the first set-piece battle. “The slow-motion ‘bullet-time’ weaponry (a blood droplet sliced in half!), the incredible combat sequences (variations on the bamboo-forest battle in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and startlingly beautiful natural vistas make this essential eye candy.� – Liam Lacey, The Globe & Mail
