YesAsia Editorial Description

Director Zhou Xiaowen brings an epic tale of China's first Emperor to the screen in The Emperor's Shadow. Jiang Wen (The Sun Also Rises) stars as King Ying Zheng (Qinshihuang), who strives to conquer all of China and rule it beneath his iron hand. But giving China identity requires more than a unified ruler. Ying Zheng wants one form of currency, one written language, and even a single anthem to represent his beloved China. To compose an anthem fit for a king, Ying Zheng enlists his childhood friend Gao Jianli (Ge You, The Banquet), who once was like a brother to Ying Zheng. But the years have driven a wedge between the two men, and Jianli is more likely to sympathize with assassin Jing Ke, who desires the King's head. When Ying Zheng conquers Jianli's home territory and brings the musician before him to compose his anthem, a battle of wills between the two proud men begins...

Featuring a sumptuous production that ranks among China's most expensive, The Emperor's Shadow is a remarkable achievement that successfully blends historical pageantry with a powerful drama about two old friends separated by years and divergent ideology. Jiang Wen and Ge You are two of China's most popular and accomplished actors, and both turn in powerful, charismatic performances. Mixing epic history and intimate personal drama, The Emperor's Shadow is a truly rewarding and stunning motion picture achievement.

天子, 作為一朝之主, 萬民之王, 黃土地上就數他最位高權重, 要風得風, 上至將領, 下至蟻民, 遠至敵虜, 近至親友, 也只是一群活在他影子下, 任他擺佈的棋子罷, 但再卑微的, 都總有叛逆之心, 任憑他們外表看來, 是那樣的逆來順受由主宰與受制促成之惡性循環, 天子或棋子, 恐怕誰也走不出來。
