“Shadow brings heart and spectacle together, and the result is a bombastic martial arts wuxia replete with duels of breath-taking beauty that will please longtime Zhang acolytes and newbies alike.”~Leonardo Goi, The Film Stage

Aroview: Masterful wuxia epic from director Zhang Yimou (HERO, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS), set in a kingdom where a cunning military commander plots to overthrow a young and unpredictable king using a secret weapon: a "shadow" lookalike that he can call upon to fool his enemies. Visually inspired by Chinese ink wash paintings, this is a sumptuous, breath-taking martial arts spectacular.
