Part of Depot's Martial Arts Season

In this visually arresting martial arts epic set in ancient China, an unnamed fighter is being honored for defeating three of the king's most dangerous enemies. When Nameless recounts his battles with the assassins -- Broken Sword, Flying Snow and Moon -- the king begins to question some of the details.

As Nameless goes on, the king challenges the tales, interjecting his own take on these perhaps suspect version of events.

'Through the film's striking use of color and landscape, combined with its riveting action sequences, it goes beyond the chronological constraints of a typical blockbuster film' - Terry Nguyen, Vox
