Summary
 

Jacky Cheung won a Golden Horse award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in this film. [Anonymous] This is Tsui Hark and King Hu's interpretation of a well-known romantic and action-filled novel. Fox, an easy-going and good-natured swordsman from Ming Dynasty China, gets involved in a scramble for a priceless book. A senior swordsman, Lin, tells Fox the location of the book, and begs him to tell this secret to his son. Afterwards Fox has other strange encounters with a musical instrument and music scores falling into his hands. He becomes the target of several killers, who believe he possesses the book. He is rescued by a beautiful lady who would not let him see her face. Fox then finds out that his martial arts teacher, who is like a father to him, is his real enemy. He defeats his teacher, disposes of the book and leaves, laughing, with the beautiful lady in his arms. [Rim Films Catalog]
