DVD Tip: Shi Mian Mai Fu / House Of Flying Daggers
|Yesterday I saw the movie "House of Flying Daggers", Yimou Zhang's follow up to "Hero". I was Hero's greatest fan and now I'm absolutly "wow"ed again! Yimou Zhang has created another stunning visual masterpiece: the costumes are gorgeous, the locations are beautiful, the music and sound production immaculate, the colour is to die for, the martial and dance sequences incredibly choreographed and energetic and the CG is seamless.|
Yimou Zhang, once a photographer and cinematographer himself, has an exquisite eye. You can feel each flower and blade of grass, and marvel at the vivid detail in the costumes. Probably the fight scene in the bamboo forest is one of the best! It's wildly sensuous on a visual level.
If you are intrigued with dance-like martial arts, performed in the most breathtaking sceneries - "House of Flying Daggers" is a MUST!
The official site has trailers, a picture gallery, cast information, director's statement, review excerpts, and links:
