From The Booth

There were Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan movies. And for kung fu fans looking for more, there were the wuxia films from Hong Kong, often found in the Toronto's Chinese movie theatres or on obscure videotape versions. But when Ang Lee married the poetic athleticism of Chinese martial arts with the slick visuals of Hollywood moviemaking, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon took Western moviegoers by storm. It received 10 Oscar nominations and was named best film of the year by more than 100 film critics.

Two master warriors (Chow Yun Fat and Michelle Yeoh) are faced with their greatest challenge when the treasured Green Destiny sword is stolen. A young aristocrat (Zhang Ziyi) prepares for an arranged marriage, but soon reveals her superior fighting talents and her deeply romantic past. As each warrior battles for justice, they come face to face with their worst enemy - and the inescapable, enduring power of love. Set against 19th-century China's breathtaking landscape, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is the action-packed, box office smash from acclaimed director Ang Lee, and featuring stunning martial arts choreography by Yuen Wo Ping (The Matrix). This stunning new, restored 4K version demands to be seen in the theatre!

In Mandarin with subtitles.
