Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon by Ang Lee( Visual )

97 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 3,582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shot over the rich and vibrant landscapes of Mainland China, this award-winning film tracks the lives of three proud fighters each trying to deal with their true inner emotions: the brave warrior who is unable to declare his true love; the woman fighter whose calm demeanor belies the inner turmoil of her yearning; and the young female aristocrat set to put into a loveless marriage, but secretly needing to rebel. The choices that each of them makes lead to a violent showdown in which each are forever changed by the surprising outcome. Traditionally, martial arts films are male-dominated, with female roles being mostly supporting. This film however, turns the table around with the central character being Zhang Ziyi
