THE ASSASSIN
NIE YIN NIANG
2015, Well-Go USA, 105 min, Taiwan/France, Dir: Hou Hsiao-Hsien

Director Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s 9-years-in-the-making wuxia epic is a tone poem that is visually arresting, heavily layered with period details and exquisite framing – as well as an out-and-out martial arts film with amazing choreographed fight sequences. In 9th-century China, Nie Yinninang (Qi Shu) returns home to her family after a long absence hiding a secret: she has been trained as an assassin and ordered to kill the cousin who now governs the largest military region in North China – and to whom she was promised from a young age. Winner of Best Director at Cannes, and Taiwan's official 2016 Oscar submission. “A staggeringly lovely period film ... Filled with palace intrigue, expressive silences, flowing curtains, whispering trees and some of the most ravishingly beautiful images to have graced this festival (Cannes).” - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times. In Mandarin with English subtitles.


Screening format: DCP. No vouchers accepted for this show.
