From the producer of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and the director of Hero.

The waning Tang dynasty is torn by unrest, and the police are on the hunt for the leader of the most prominent enemy army, the House of Flying Daggers

"Zhang Yimou .. has conjured another extraordinary, swoonworthy spectacle....the kind of gorgeous romantic adventure that makes going to the cinema so deeply worthwhile."
