“The way of the sword is pitiless,” Jiaxin tells her charge, but Yinniang has such sad music in her soul that her empathy
cannot be obliterated or overcome. Like its subject, Hou’s breathtaking film is a beautiful mystery, matchlessly skilful,
yet still hostage to human sentiments – and all the better for it.
