New 4K restoration! In King Hu's late masterpiece, a traveling scholar, intent on translating a Buddhist sutra, loses his way in the mountains. Time and space collapse around him as he continues his journey, encountering ghostly visitations amid a haunting fantasia of color, light and landscape.

"King Hu's Legend Of The Mountain is a true epic, a wonderful mix of fantasy/horror and martial arts that benefits from a strong cast, beautiful location photography and impressive production values. Kino's Blu-ray release looks and sounds very good and contains a few nice extra features that document both the history of the film and the man who made it. Highly recommended."
