Legend of the Mountain

King Hu rose to prominence in the 1960s and 70s as a superb director of wuxia, a prevalent genre in Chinese-language film and literature built on ancient lore of swords, sorcery and chivalrous heroes. LEGEND OF THE MOUNTAIN comes from the director's later period, when his artistry, specifically his landscape compositions, was at the height of its powers.
