A Touch of Zen

Considered to be among the best martial arts films ever made, director King Hu’s medieval Chinese masterpiece, A Touch of Zen, centers on a pair of young, cunning lovers who battle a group of assassins. The fight takes them to a haunted castle, and later a bamboo forest where a group of agile Buddhist monks enter the scene. The film possesses a sense of scope and political nature beyond its peers, and will inspire awe in both action movie and art film fans alike. It plays tonight at 7:30 and tomorrow night at 8:30 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $10, $7 for Cinematheque members, those with a Cleveland Institute of Art or Cleveland State University I.D., and those age 25 and under. (Shively)
