Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s newest masterpiece, THE ASSASSIN, is an astonishing film about an exiled assassin who must choose between love or duty when she receives orders to kill a man from her past.  Taiwan’s submission for the 88th Academy Awards Best Foreign Film Category; Winner: Best Director at Cannes Film Festival

 

9th century China. 10-year-old general’s daughter Nie Yinniang is abducted by a nun who initiates her into the martial arts, transforming her into an exceptional assassin charged with eliminating cruel and corrupt local governors. One day, having failed in a task, she is sent back by her mistress to the land of her birth, with orders to kill the man to whom she was promised – a cousin who now leads the largest military region in North China. After 13 years of exile, the young woman must confront her parents, her memories and her long-repressed feelings.
