A nameless warrior arrives at an emperor's palace with three weapons, each belonging to a famous assassin who had sworn to kill the emperor. As the nameless man spins out his story--and the emperor presents his own interpretation of what might really have happened--each episode is drenched in red, blue, white. The result is stunning, a dazzling action movie with an emotional richness that deepens with every step. 2004 Directed by Yimou Zhang
