A Touch Of Zen (1971) (Blu-ray) (4K Restored Version) (Hong Kong Version) Blu-ray Region A
King Hu (Director)
| Miao Tian
| Shih Jun (Actor)
| Xu Feng (Actor)
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 films. 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.

Released in 1983, Hou Hsiao Hsien's fourth feature The Boys from Fengkuei marks the beginning of the filmmaking style that the Taiwan auteur would become known for.
