Acclaimed Chinese director Zhang Yimou’s atmospheric thriller features striking imagery that makes this work, in a career of spectacular-looking and affecting films, among his finest. The filmmaker who brought us such accomplished works as House of Flying Daggers and Raise the Red Lantern brings us his latest period epic. The drama centres on the kingdom of Pei, a place ruled by a young and volatile king amid growing signs of unrest both inside and outside the walls of the realm.

Don't miss the fantastic opportunity to see Zhang Yimou's latest martial arts opus on the big screen.
