Original Title: Wo hu cang long

From novel by: Du Lu Wang

Keywords: Action/Adventure, Martial Arts, China

Two feudal Chinese warriors tackle interpersonal conflict on their way to recovering a stolen sword and pacifying a wanted convict.

ABSTRACT
Qing Dynasty-era China serves as the backdrop for this martial arts-intensive tale of bravery, romance, and fighting centered around the Green Destiny, a four hundred-year old sword stolen in transit from martial arts master Li Mu Bai to Beijing that ultimately becomes an effects-packed point of contention between warrior Yu Shu Lien, politician's daughter Jen and evildoer Jade Fox. Boasting choreography work from the team behind The Matrix and an ensemble cast, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was one of the most successful Chinese-language films in American cinematic history and served to throw director Ang Lee's name firmly into the Hollywood mainstream.
