House of Flying Daggers

Zhang Ziyi, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Andy Lau star in this stunning blend of lyrical romance and eye-popping fight scenes. Mei is an exotic, beautiful blind dancer, associated with a dangerous revolutionary gang, known as the House of Flying Daggers. Captured by officers of the decadent Tang Dynasty, a police captain masquerades as a rogue swordsman and helps Mei escape, hoping she'll lead him to the group's headquarters, only to find himself falling in love with her. The deceptions fly as fast as the blades in director Zhang Yimou's ("Hero") elegantly filmed spectacle.
