Potent performances from Yun-Fat Chow, Michelle Yeoh and newcomer Zhang Ziyi give heft to this story about a young woman in ancient China who longs for an adventurous life rather than a dull arranged marriage. Ang Lee's articulate direction, coupled with Woo-Ping Yuen's (The Matrix) balletic martial arts choreography, makes for a devastating one-two punch -- and the treetop fight scene is not to be missed.
