YesAsia Editorial Description

Named one of the 100 best films of all-time by TIME Magazine, and one of the ten greatest Chinese-language films in history by the Hong Kong Film Awards, King Hu's 1971 masterpiece A Touch of Zen is the holy grail of wuxia pian. A huge influence on Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (and practically every martial arts movie ever made), Hu's three-hour epic weds glorious highwire-flying action sequences with insightful philosophy and a cinematic grace that remains unmatched to this day. Simultaneously profound and profoundly entertaining, A Touch of Zen is absolutely required viewing for any serious fan of wuxia.

Scholar Ku (Shih Jun) is approaching middle age, but has yet to find a wife. His prospects seemingly improve after a mysterious girl named Yang (Xu Feng) moves into the abandoned villa next door, but the fierce beauty wants nothing to do with the bookish Ku. When the scholar discovers Yang is the fugitive daughter of a wrongly executed noble being hunted by the authorities, he agrees to help Yang and her coconspirators elude capture and exact their revenge. With imperial forces closing in, Ku, Yang, and their band of rebels enter into a deadly fight that takes them on a journey throughout China and ends in the unlikeliest confrontation imaginable.

本片改編自「聊齋誌異」中的「俠女」。明朝熹宗年代,陝西省懷遠縣有位書生顧省齋(石雋)靠著賣山水字畫維生,母親(張冰玉)怨他不考科舉求功名,他卻以諸葛亮「苟全性命於亂世,不求聞達於諸侯」的淡泊表明心志。顧家旁的靖虜屯堡傳有鬼魅之跡,實則暫居著一對母女。顧母探明,這位少女名叫楊之芸(徐楓),家境清貧,僅靠著糊製錫箔所得度日。楊女實深感受到顧家母子照顧,而在花前月下與雇省齋有了一夜情緣。次日清晨,東廠歐陽年(田鵬)闖入,楊慧貞與歐陽年遂展開一場絕命廝殺。原來,楊慧貞乃是朝廷重臣楊漣(賈魯石)之後,當年,楊漣因上書彈劾內官專政而為宦官門達(王瑞)所害,東林餘黨魯將軍(薛漢)與石將軍(白鷹)偕楊女出逃,但是東廠宦黨仍是窮追不捨,在危害中幸得高僧慧圓(喬宏)相助,並收留楊慧貞躲藏於寺中習武。得知此事,顧省齋雖為一介書生,仍願助楊女一臂之力......

Ming Dynasty noblewoman Yang must escape from the evil eunuch Hsu. She seeks refuge at a decrepit town where she gets assistance from a naive scholar as a group of mysterious yet powerful monks. Winner of a special technical award at Cannes Film Festival for "Superior Technique", A Touch Of Zen is a milestone in martial arts cinema, filled with gorgeous sceneries, superb fights, and an unforgettable finale that ranks as one of the greatest in film history.

Now that's Woman Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
Whew, talk about strong stoicism. A Touch of Zen gives a clear picture of who is good, who is evil & when the Shaolin monks were not a force to be messed with. The story seems to feel long & drawn out so not much re-play value for me but fond memories. (watch for a very young Sammo Hung as the villians henchman) Once again I maintain that this one also doesn't come up to the standards or likeable characters of Come Drink With Me but hey it still fits in the romantic classic-classic swordplay.

The classic touch Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
A touch of Zen is one of those classic movies that you must see if you a fan of a wuxia, because it sets a certain benchmark. This movie was made back in the days when you didn't have all the flashy wires and slick CGI, but this is what makes it one of the greats. The director made use of timing, music and atmosphere. The movie starts off slow, but slowly pulls you into the story and wanting more. Just as you thought it was all over, comes part two and which is just as gripping as the first half. This movie is a great wuxia epic and deserves more recognition. Sadly, it has only been shed some light as a footnote of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and House of Flying Daggers. But then again Sir Alec Guinness will always be famous for being in Star Wars. King Wu was one of the most talented directors of his generation and one with vision.

The best chinese classic !! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This is the film that inspired Lee Ang's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The bamboo fighting scene alone is worth it.

This is also the first Chinese film to win Cannes Award for Best Technique or something during the early 70s.

Just hope we get to see the other 6 o 7 classic films from this master director.
