About This DVD

Zhang Yimou, coming off "Hero", his most internationally acclaimed and successful film to date, now brings us another martial arts epic set in ancient China. "House of Flying Daggers" stars Andy Lau ("Infernal Affairs") and Takeshi Kaneshiro ("Returner") as Leo and Jin, respectively, two Imperial underlings ordered to bring down a rebel group called the House of Flying Daggers. The empire is on the verge of collapse, and the Daggers are helping to move things along. Not surprisingly, the Powers That Be are a tad ticked.

Chinese director Zhang Yimou fuses a martial arts action-drama with a tragic romance in this elegant period piece.

In the year 859 A.D., as the Tang dynasty is beset by rebellion, Leo (Andy Lau) and Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro) are a pair of lawmen who have been given the task of ferreting out the leaders of a revolutionary faction known as the Flying Daggers. Working on a tip that members of the group are working out of a brothel called the Peony Pavilion, Jin arrives there in disguise and is introduced to a beautiful blind dancer named Mei (Zhang Ziyi).

After watching Mei's performance following several drinks, Jim drunkenly attempts to have his way with her, and Leo is forced to intervene. After gaining Mei's trust in a game of skill, Leo arrests her and informs her that she'll be tortured if she doesn't tell all she knows about the Flying Daggers. Jin responds by helping Mei break out of prison, but he has an ulterior motive ? by following her, Leo and Jin are certain she'll lead them to the Flying Daggers. However, as he helps the blind girl find her way back home, Jin finds himself falling in love with Mei, and isn't certain if he's willing to betray her again.

Be prepared for the latest martial arts epic from acclaimed director Zhang Yimou who has been stunning the world with Hero. How does love exist in a world where no one can be trusted and ambush is coming from all sides in House of Flying Daggers?
