House of Flying Daggers

[cert 15, 118 mins]

During the reign of the Tang dynasty in China, a
secret organization called The House of the Flying
Daggers rises and opposes the government. A
police officer called Leo sends Officer Jin to
investigate a young dancer named Mei, claiming
that she has ties to the Flying Daggers. Leo arrests
Mei, only to have Jin break her free in a plot to gain
her trust and lead the police to the new leader of
the secret organization. On their journey,
supposedly to the secret headquarters of the House
of Flying Daggers, they fall in love but things are far
more complicated than they seem.
