The wild bunch, bold cinematic rebels and adventurous films
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 internationallyNORTH AMERICAN PREMIEREBRAN 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.
