Synopsis

Yang has left behind her position among the nobility to begin a life as a fugitive. Her journey is put in check when a swordsman discovers her true identity, drawing a legion of opponents around him. A capital work in King Hu’s filmography, its choreographies, the sophistication of its editing and its existential wealth are still a zenith of wuxia even today.
