Synopsis

In ancient China, a warlord lives in constant fear of his life as opposing states plot against him. However, one day word comes to him that a nameless man has defeated the three most deadly assassins who have been threatening his life - but can he trust the unassuming hero's story? Director Zhang Yimou's fable is a visual treat, with amazingly choreographed martial arts scenes set against dazzling and luscious backdrops.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
