SHADOW

New Releases

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

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 from the blood of the defeated.

In a kingdom ruled by a young and unpredictable king, the military commander has a secret weapon: a “shadow”, a look-alike who can fool both his enemies and the King himself. Now he must use this weapon in an intricate plan that will lead his people to victory in a war that the King does not want.

REVIEWS

“Every supremely controlled stylistic element of Zhang Yimou’s breathtakingly beautiful SHADOW is an echo of another, a motif repeated, a pattern recurring in a fractionally different way each time.” – Jessica Kiang, Variety

“This is probably the most stunningly beautiful Zhang has made to date.” -Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter

“Zhang is seriously gifted at combining eye-catching imagery with darkly engaging stories. And this film is packed with sequences that take the breath away.” – Rich Cline, Shadows On The Wall
