The Assassin

Hou Hsiao-Hsien (Flowers of Shanghai, Millenium Mambo) directs this lush, atmospheric martial arts drama about a female assassin (Shu Qi, The Transporter) who accepts a dangerous mission to kill a political leader in 9th century China. Slow but never less than artfully composed, this is one of the most beautiful wuxia epics since Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. In Mandarin with English subtitles. 105 minutes Unrated.
