Before I start I would like to recommend that you purchase the BLUE UNDERGROUND 2 disc edition. It has a far superior sound and picture quality and a wealth of extras. The Film was originally meant to star James Coburn and Bruce Lee, so five years after his mysterious death THE SILENT FLUTE finally made it to the big screen.
Set in a never neverland reality, Cord (Jeff Cooper) searches for the book of enlightenment. On his journey he meets the wise blind man Ah Selhm (David Carradine) who becomes a yoda style mentor who sets him various challenges for the young warrior to conquer in order to reach enlightenment, but extremely violent ones! This is the one Kung Fu movie to transents the kicks and punches, and acts like a modern Zen parable.
