Zhang Yimou shows again his incredible talent for visual effects. The entire film is immersed in a gloomy color palette with shades of gray and constant rain. With its deep black and white tones, the film is clearly inspired by the classical Chinese painting technique with washed ink and a new hit from the rich oeuvre of the Chinese grandmaster. Yimou has put the wuxia genre back on the map with his earlier film Hero (2002) and proves this has not been forgotten.
