HERO 12A

with English subtitles dir Zhang Yimou China 2002 (1hr 44mins) with Jet Li, Maggie Cheung, Tony Leung Director Zhang Yimou brings the sumptuous visual style of his previous films to the high-kicking kung fu genre. A nameless warrior arrives at an emperor's palace with three weapons, each belonging to a famous assassin who had sworn to kill the emperor. As the nameless man spins out his story - and the emperor presents his own interpretation of what might really have happened - each episode is drenched in its own distinctive colour.
