Golden Swallow (Jin Yanzi)

de Chang Cheh

Synopsis

Guided by a ruthless sense of justice, a sword master scatters bodies around ancient China, leaving a golden dart behind as his signature. A sign with which he hopes to attract his old companion Golden Swallow to his side once again. Planned to be the continuation of Come Drink with Me, Chang Cheh wound up taking the film to his ground to consolidate a characteristic style that established him as a milestone of wuxia during the Shaw Brothers' golden years. An everlasting classic where Cheng Pei-pei and Lo Lieh shined but it was Wang Yu who finally prevailed, representing the pure masculine essence of Chang Cheh's cinema.
