Early 1930s. Four Chinese agents, perfectly trained in the Soviet Union, are parachuted to Manchukuo, a puppet state created by Japan. Their extremely dangerous mission is to prove that the occupying forces are conducting cruel experiments on people. It quickly turns out that the agents were betrayed and their lives and mission are in danger. Can they survive in the stunningly snowy Harbin, to let the world know about the sufferings of their nation?
Zhang Yimou is a versatile master of cinema who loves new challenges. His first thriller, filled with betrayals, traps and shootings, is worthy of Alfred Hitchcock himself. A noose of treason closing in on the protagonists, the loneliness that surrounds them in a foreign land, the inability to tell a friend from a foe, shootouts and spectacular car chases – "Cliff Walkers" is the most stylish and the most effective thriller of the year.
Fifth Generation Chinese director, one of the most awarded filmmakers from the country. His career began in 1987. His first films, focusing on the people from the Chinese province, quickly brought him international fame. Later on, he focused on high-budget productions, often surprising with the sheer panache of his vision. "Hero," "House of the Flying Daggers," or "The Great Wall" are watched all around the world. Recently, the director was famous for his problems with the Chinese censorship – his film "One Second" was pulled out of the Berlinale. But Zhang still remains an extremely busy filmmaker.
