Wonderful period piece about revenge and regret.
31 March 1999 | by (La Jolla) – See all my reviews

This film seems to have slipped through the festival cracks, but is a beautifully photographed and expertly acted treatise not only on bloodlust, revenge and, ultimately, regret; but on preconceived notions leading people (audience included) far more astray than they can imagine.

Set during the collapse of the last Chinese Dynasty, the sole survivor of her family's massacre hires an assassin to murder the rival clan leader responsible for the slaughter.

One of the film's many characteristic, but unpredictable twists is that the leader's son falls in love with her and "asks" that she come to their home to pose for a portrait, thereby bringing her into intimate contact with a family she professes to hate.

No one in this film is what they seem, including the hired assassin who poses as her husband.

If you can find it, see it.
