house of flying daggers

dir. by zhang yimou

Like watching poetry in motion. What I liked best was the visual element, and the beautiful, vivid coloring towards the end of the film - the green, the yellow, the blue, purple & red. Some of the dialogue was a bit hokey for my taste, but it was written in Mandarin, not English - so I don't wanna judge.
