Jane Austen meets Bruce Lee in Ang 'Sense And Sensibility' Lee's astonishing martial arts period drama. In a fictionalised version of early 19th century China, a world of heroic warriors and deep philosophical values, Lee seamlessly interweaves the stories of two sets of lovers, and a revenge tale with a feminist twist. The fight scenes are groundbreaking, as choreographed by expert Yuen Wo Ping. At once breathtaking and beautiful, 'Crouching Tiger''s also a cinematic landmark: its fusion of the best elements from East and West cinema has created something wholly new.
