2019 > China > Directed by Zhang Yimou
With Deng Chao, Sun Li, Zheng Kai, Wang Qianyuan
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. Based on the fabled “Three Kingdoms” saga of Chinese legend… Shadow is a knotty tale of palace intrigue, old grudges and crafty doppelgangers. 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. “Shadow [is] a thrilling return to form, which matches Zhang’s best work for the sheer voracious elegance of the images and possibly surpasses much of it for inventiveness.” (Variety) In Mandarin. Subtitled. More at wellgousa.com/films/shadow
