An epic set against the breathtaking landscapes of ancient China, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon combines the exhilarating martial arts choreography by Yuen Wo-Ping (The Matrix) with the sensitivity and classical storytelling of an Ang Lee film. The result is something truly unexpected: romantic, emotionally powerful entertainment.
Did you Know?
- Michelle Yeoh deliberately did not work for a year before filming began so she could concentrate on training and learning Mandarin.
- The actors almost invariably performed their own stunts. CGI was used to remove the wires holding them up.
- “Crouching tiger hidden dragon” is a quote from Chinese mythology. It refers to hiding your strength from others — advice which is followed all too well by the characters in the film.
- The Green Destiny Sword used in the movie, along with other weapons in the movie, were made in Taiwan. The swordsmith was actually a neighbor of Ang Lee in his current residence in Tainan, Taiwan.
