Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Wo hu cang long (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon)
Director: Ang Lee
Cast: Chow Yun-Fat, Michelle Yeoh, Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen, Lung Sihung

It seems Ang Lee can master any genre. This one is an exciting and visually beautiful martial arts movie made for Western sensibilities. The film offers a perfect mix of drama, fights, romance and mysticism, and it became an international hit although the dialogue is entirely in Mandarin. Chow Yun-Fat and Michelle Yeoh are excellent as the tragic lovers. Oscar winner for Best Cinematography, Best Score, Best Art Direction and Best Foreign Language Film.
