A 1994 feature from the Hong Kong action-and-fantasy virtuoso Tsui Hark, who both produced and directed. Based on an ancient Chinese legend and set during the Chung dynasty, it’s a story about forbidden love that parallels Yentl in having its heroine disguise herself as a boy so she can study at an elite academy, though here it’s her father who comes up with the idea as a way to prepare her for an arranged marriage into a wealthy family. But she befriends and falls in love with a poor but gifted outcast; with Wu Chi-lung and Charlie Young.
