The movie is set in chaotic 1920's China, when warlords fought each other for power while Sun Yat-Sen's underground movement tried to establish a democratic republic. The movie tells the story of three young women and two young men who are thrown together. One young woman grabs a box of jewels during the looting when one warlord takes Peking. A deserting soldier joins her, but the jewels end up at the Peking Opera. Here we meet the daughter of the head of the troupe, who dreams of being an actress. But even female roles are played by men in the opera. Soon, the daughter of the currently ruling warlord and a male agent of the democratic underground are involved. Written by
When I first heard of this movie, I thought that it was going to be one of those boring movies. But, as I saw it, it was so cool! The script was great and the action was incredible! What I suggest is that you rent it but I dare you to just see this movie once. And once you see it, buy it! It will be the best cinema that you have ever seen. So, buy it. You have no time to waste! Just go to Netflix.com and buy this movie. Because if you do, you will be amazed to see this wonderful movie again and again. Plus if you buy it, buy the DVD version. Since it has trailers of the movies that Tsui Hark was responsible for. And special features too. THIS MOVIE ROCKS!
