Shadow is a 2018 Chinese period film.
With Shadow, director Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of flying daggers) once again pushes the boundaries of wuxia action to create a film like no other, masterfully painting a canvas of inky blacks and greys punctuated with bursts of color from the blood of the defeated. In a kingdom ruled by a young and unpredictable king, the military commander has a secret weapon: a «shadow», a look-alike who can fool both his enemies and the King himself. Now he must use this weapon in an intricate plan that will lead his people to victory in a war that the King does not want.
Director: Yimou Zhang
Stars: Chao Deng, Li Sun, Ryan Zheng
