Product description

Product Description

Taiwanese martial arts feature. The film follows the painter Ku (Shih Jun) as he tries to protect a female fugitive, Yang (Hsu Feng), from being captured by an evil eunuch. After the eunuch arrives with an army of East Chamber guards, the artist and the warrior fortify Ku's mother's supposedly haunted mansion and set ghostly traps in preparation for the soldiers' arrival. Will the pair survive the inevitable battles?

From the Back Cover

A profound influence on Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and one of the most visually spectacular and beguiling films to emerge from the Far East, veteran director King Hu’s A Touch of Zen is quite simply essential viewing.

An ambitious, intricately structured tale that begins as a ghost story in a sleepy town outside Peking, Hu goes on to audaciously blend elements from the political thriller, the martial arts genre (the film also blazed a trail for Bruce Lee) and Japanese Samurai movies to create a highly lyrical and spiritual Ming dynasty epic. Moreover, the film boasts some of the most impressively choreographed and imaginative action sequences ever committed to celluloid. Beautifully performed throughout (the feisty, combative heroine Hsu Feng presents a refreshing vision of female empowerment), A Touch of Zen has acquired a legendary status that entirely befits its visionary daring and its utterly transcendent beauty.
