Directed by Yimou Zhang, 2018, China, Not rated, 1 hour 56 minutes
With Shadow, director Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers) once again pushes the boundaries of wuxia action to create a film like no other, masterfully painting a canvas of inky blacks and greys punctuated with bursts of color accenting the skillful action. In a kingdom ruled by a young and unpredictable king, the military commander has a secret weapon: a “shadow” look-alike who can fool both his enemies and the king himself. An intricate plan is devised that will provide a strategic advantage in war. This great director is one of FLICS’ favorites—we’ve screened six of his previous films in the last 25 years.
In Chinese with English subtitles.
