While House Of Flying Daggers is an astounding martial arts epic, at its heart the film is a romance, built on traumas of unrequited love and jealousy that are even more devastating than its many battles royal. The film’s colours, especially in opulent period costumes, are unimaginably sumptuous. House Of Flying Daggers’s bold visuals are sheer grace pumped up with detailed sound design and saturated with impossibly complex swordplay. All of this, coupled with its eternally romantic temperament, will take your breath away.

“Certain to be a worldwide hit. Western audiences hungering for more Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon have a great meal headed their way.” – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
