A Touch of Zen

Xia nü; King Hu, 1971, OV (mandarín.), AT + eST, Taiwanská ; King Hu, 1971, versions: OR,SS,ES,

Director: King Hu

Zen must be understood not through verbal explanation, but through an enlightening experience. That is an idea that starches through the story of three fugitives, a scholar and two martial artists falsely accused of crime by an evil Eunuch. A Touch of Zen might not be the first or ground breaking within the wuxia genre nor filmography of its director King Hu, but is definitely is a most special one. If the many talents of wuxia heroes make them legends, A Touch of Zen is a kind of a legend of the legends. Not only its story carries several ideological layers, it is one of the most beautiful films made so far. The way King Hu works with the camera and employs the editing became a source of inspiration and school for masters of Hong Kong action cinema (Tsui Hark, John Woo), it is to be seen in modern wuxia films of Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of the Flying Daggers), of masterful Hidden Tiger Crouching Dragon by Ang Lee; and it doesn`t stop there – just watch the films of Ann Hui or Hou Hsiao-Hsien (n.b. Assassin) carefully.
