House of Flying Daggers

Part of the 40 Years of Filmhouse Season


In the ninth century, during the decline of the Tang Dynasty, the House of Flying Daggers is an underground army that steals from the rich and gives to the poor. Their greatest rivals are the local authorities, especially captains Jin and Leo, who are on an urgent mission to shut the House down. When these two discover that a key rebel – the ravishing Mei – is a dancer at the decadent Peony Pavilion, they arrest her. Jin then goes undercover, attempting to infiltrate the House by breaking Mei out of jail and escorting her back to the Flying Daggers’ secret headquarters. He counts on his charm to avoid arousing her distrust, but quickly finds himself in over his head when he falls in love with her. However, Jin and Mei find themselves pursued by imperial troops and it soon becomes clear that everyone has something to hide.
