[Movie] 聶隱娘 The Assassin with Shu Qi and Ethan Ruan

21128_4204709_922705This martial movie seems really promising! It is a collaboration between China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, which normally means (at least from my personal experience), good plot device and special effects. It already won a prize during the Cannes Film Festival…

  • Cast: Shu Qi, Chang Chen, Zhou Yun, Ethan Ruan
  • Release date: 31st July, 2015

Set in the Tang Dynasty (hehe, one of my favorite ^^), this wuxia film tells the story of Nie Yinniang and her transformation into a skilled assassin. She is asked to kill Lord Tian, whom she once betrothed. Overall, the movie seems interesting to me and despite a very simple plot, it looks nice enough for me to look forward to it.
