This year’s Smokescreen series ‘Scene Stealing Style’ looks at how art direction, the look and feel of a film can help to tell the story. You may not have heard of the films on the list but each is iconic, and in its own way set standards and shaped later generations of film making.
House of the Flying Dagger’s is a Chinese language historical romance. A rich elaborate beautifully stylish film that links, costume, set design, and cinematography. One of the most spectacular elements of this film are the martial arts sequences, which are beautifully stylised even balletic, while the use of colour (which plays on the concept of Wuxing Colour Theory) creates a film that reviewer Robert Ebert described as a ‘kinetic artwork installation.’
Director: Zhang Yimou
