New York Times Critic’s Pick

With SHADOW, director Zhang Yimou (COMING HOME, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS, RAISE THE RED LANTERN) once again pushes the boundaries of wuxia action to create a film like no other.   The story is set in China during the legendary Three Kingdoms period of the 3rd century where there is an uneasy peace between a trio of kings.

“Zhang Yimou’s SHADOW has barely begun before two things become immediately apparent: this is an extravagant and exquisite visual tour de force with a plot that will take some time to sort out.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“A rapturously beautiful work…combining the exquisite details of Chinese ink-brush painting with the melodramatic extravagance and suspension of disbelief of opera.” – Cary Darling, Houston Chronicle

“Breathtakingly beautiful.” – Jessica Kiang, Variety

Language: Mandarin (English subtitles)

Length: 1 hr. 55 min.
