Here's an action picture
that was promoted as a 'South Korean Conan,' due to its obsession
with broad swords, a realistic fighting style, and melodrama romance.
The film opens with an existing ancient feud between two warring tribes
that centers around a mountain called Mount Holy. One tribe has become
most prosperous, while the other lives in a barren area where food is
scarce and they have resorted to eating the flesh of their dead. This
tribe - desperate for a better existence - creates a Holy Sword that can
challenge the Mountain god and, most importantly, the other tribe. But
first they must sacrifice a young girl named Vee in order to activate
this supernatural sword.
An amazing action
fantasy! Loads of epic fight scenes plus an intricate story of people
struggling for survival against all odds, physical and supernatural. Here
is a beautiful, action-packed adventure about violence and love from Korean
filmmakers Kang He-Gyu and Le Mi-Suk (the team responsible for SHIRI
OF WAR). This film stars actress Kim Yun-Jin, in her first project
after the blockbuster SHIRI
and before her controversial role in the erotic romance DEEP
LOVE. Ms Kim left South Korea in 2004 to become a regular star
on ABC's popular series Lost.
