Dir. Yimou Zhang (China: 2004), 119 min.  House of Flying Daggers is set in 859 AD in the Feng Tian County during the decline of the once great Tang Dynasty.  Numerous rebel groups were forming including the House of Flying Daggers.  Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro), a police captain, given the task of searching out the leaders of the revolution, helps a beautiful member of the Flying Daggers rebel group, Mei (Zhang Ziyi), escape imprisonment that his partner Leo (Andy Lau) put her in.  However, while helping her find her way home he finds himself falling in love with her.  The film, by Chinese director Zhang Yimou, is a fusion of martial arts action-drama with a tragic romance.
