Summary
  Set during the Tang dynasty over a thousand years ago, Clara Law has fashioned a voluptuous and spellbinding epic of betrayal, temptation, war, sex, and beauty. As two princes fight for succession of the kingdom, the film opens with the first of many battles, a massacre worthy of Kurosawa or Peckinpah. The central character, General Shi, is disgraced by this act and thus begins a long, hard road to redemption. But what surprises await on this road, including a Buddhist temple debauched by music, drink and erotic pleasures, and the bald, weirdly seductive assassin played by Joan Chen. [Rim Films Catalog]
