D: Zhang Yimou (The Great Wall, Coming Home, The Flowers of War, Curse of the Golden Flower, House of Flying Daggers, Hero, The Road Home, Ju Dou, Red Sorghum).
S: Chao Deng, Li Sun, Ryan Zheng, Xiaotong Guan, Qianyuan Wang, Jun Hu, Lei Wu, Jingchun Wang.
Game of thrones, with stunning martial arts. An elaborate, inventive action film, with plenty of political intrigue. Epitomises the ornate, from the design and the choreography to the plot.
