About this Episode

The sublime martial artistry of the 2000 classic, CrouchingTiger, Hidden Dragon, demonstrates only one form of the film’s great battles. The other style of conflict takes place on the war-torn fields of inner turmoil and forbidden love. Michelle Yeoh and Zhang Ziyi portray parallel characters whose internal struggle pits what they have outwardly accepted against what they inwardly long for. And when Chow Yun-fat’s Green Destiny sword is stolen, all three characters embark on a path that becomes a collision course of emotion and a final frontier for their redemption. Join Snobs on Film as we continue our #1Theme10Films season with this incredibly epic, yet intimate tale.
