With his latest work Shadow, Zhang Yimou tells an impressive story that draws inspiration from the classic story about the Three Kingdoms, starring Chao Deng, Li Sun and Ryan Zheng. From Thursday 13 May we will be showing this historical drama for two weeks.


The king of Pei and his people live in exile after their city, Jing, is taken over. It is difficult for the king to accept this loss, but he also knows his own limitations. His anger comes to a climax when he discovers that one of his most important generals has challenged the opponent to a duel. What he doesn't know is that this is a look-a-like. His real general is wounded, but has secretly trained a double to become his "shadow," which he can play like a puppet. He thinks he has solved all problems, but even he cannot prevent his wife from starting to get feelings for his double. The friction remains subdued for a long time, but in the third act of this Shakespearean drama, it comes to a bloody climax.









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.
