TAIWAN, South Korea | 120 minutes | 1979

Indisputably a cinematic masterwork, Raining in the Mountain is a mammoth artistic œuvre that needs to be seen at least once on the big screen. When the ailing abbot of a Buddhist monastery must choose a successor, three outside dignitaries arrive to witness the process. In fact, they’re thieves aiming to get their hands on a sacred, priceless and very well-guarded scroll. A philosophical martial arts movie pierced through with spirituality, it’s one of King Hu’s most celebrated, along with A Touch of Zen. Now the restored version is screening internationally
NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE
BRAN NEW RESTORATION


"When talking about wuxia film,King Hu's Raining in the Mountain is a quintessential one.Not only because it has actions in wuxia style,but also it explains the meaning of Zen perfectly well. After his other masterpieces like Come Drink with Me, Dragon Inn and A Touch of Zen, his unique artistry reached pinnacle with this film." Taste of Cinema
« Imaginez un film bâtard, inclassable. Quelque chose comme Mizoguchi revu par Leone. » Libération
« Un film de King Hu qui est sans doute le sommet de son art. » Cahiers du cinéma
