KBT Presents: HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS


It doesn't play in North American theatres until December 10th, and probably will not be in the Toronto area until the new year. But I've got a pristine Chinese DVD of Zhang Yimou's House of Flying Daggers courtesy of yesasia.com! This is going to be very likely the prettiest film you see all year. It rivals Yimou's own Hero for beauty, tops the sepia tones of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow and even edges out the surreal aesthetic of Guy Maddin's The Saddest Music in the World. Explore the visual pleasures and intense Chinese melodrama on Tuesday night. Showtime starts about 8:30pm, but feel free to show up for a beverage and a chat just prior to the screening.
