Master filmmaker Hou Hsiao-hsien won Best Director at Cannes for this lavishly told tale, which occurs in the 9th century when China is being torn apart militarily. Yinniang (Shu Qi) was abducted as a child and lives in the countryside. Trained as an unrivaled practitioner of the martial arts, she is sent back to her hometown of Weibo on a mission of vengeance.
