The Emperor and the Assassin

This is the first Chinese movie I ever watched and it remains my favorite. A great movie with historical perspective, a good storyline and plenty of action (without overdoing it).  This DVD doesn't have Chinese subtitles, but it's still one I would put on your list of "must own's".

DVD Description


From the acclaimed director of Farewell, My Concubine comes THE EMPEROR AND THE ASSASSIN - a visually stunning epic exploring the devastating price one country pays for peace and one man pays for power.

Ying Zheng, the King of Qin, has one driving ambition: to unify China's seven kingdoms into one magnificent empire. Impressed by her lover's convictions, Lady Zhao (Gong Li) helps Ying Zheng concoct an assassination plot that would justify the conquest of Qin's most powerful enemy.

When Ying Zheng's peaceful mission explodes into a brutal holocaust, a disillusioned Lady Zhao is forced to question her loyalty as well as her lover's destiny.
