2013 \ China \ 114min \ In Chinese with English subtitles \ NC16 - Some Violence 些许暴力画面

After making the award winning Feng Shui (SCFF 2013), director Wang Jing reunites with long time collaborator writer-producer Xie Xiaodong to make this historical epic drama set during the final years of the Ming Dynasty. It was turbulent times when rebels were challenging the corrupt government, and an epidemic is spreading. The drama focuses on the real-life physician Wu Youke (1582-1652), played by Feng Yuanzheng, and a ruthless Ming General Sun Chuanting, played by Leon Dai, as they became allies to help each other in their respective causes – Wu wanting to stop the epidemic and save lives, and Sun who has been tasked to battle and crush the rebellion.
