Towards the end of the Tang dynasty, the Emperor's rule is waning and corruption is rife, and many groups are formed in society to challenge the authorities. Out of all the groups, the most powerful is The House Of Flying Daggers. The government decides to send Feng Tian County's top captains Leo (Andy Lau) and Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro) to capture the new leader within 10 days.

Leo suspects that Mei (Zhang Ziyi), the beautiful new dancer at the Peony Pavilion, is the daughter of the old leader, and Leo decides to send Jin disguised as a warrior called Wind to rescue Mei, and to ensnare her trust so she'll lead them to the secret headquarters of The House Of Flying Daggers. But as Jin and Mei spend more time together, they begin to develop feelings and desire for each other. However danger is lurking from all corners, and can Jin and Mei really love each other when there are secrets being hidden from both sides?

This one was expensive to import.

The boxset could never be sold in the USA: (1) due to Sony's Region 1 legal rights for distribution and (2) the stainless steel dagger would be a lawsuit waiting to happen if some child accidentally murder someone with the weapon.  However, I'm pretty sure there is a grey market where you can get your hands on this item.

The packaging is pretty sweet, the wooden box is sturdy with the title logo etched in.  The 4-Disc set comes in a nice handsome book with the first four pages in thick cardboard (to house the discs) with the rest of its pages devoted to pictures of the stars and written text.  The content is in Chinese, so I couldn't tell you anything else about it.

As for the "flying dagger" itself, mine had discoloring and rusts on the wooden handle, possibly due to water damage or disuse.  The blade is nice and shiny.

Anyway, a really, really nice boxset.  Movie makers should take note on packages like these, because I buy stuff like this.... even if the movie wasn't very good.
