We are celebrating this holiday week by bringing you five days of winter themed posts!
Today is the epic snowy showdown between Jin and Liu over the fallen Mei from Zhang Yimou’s 2004 film “House of Flying Daggers”. The film, as a whole, is beautifully shot and choreographed utilizing rich, saturated colors and the wu xing color theory.
Roger Ebert said in his review “Forget about the plot, the characters, the intrigue, which are all splendid… and focus just on the visuals. There are interiors of ornate elaborate richness, costumes of bizarre beauty, landscapes of mountain ranges and meadows, fields of snow, banks of autumn leaves and a bamboo grove that functions like a kinetic art installation.”
