It's pulp fiction presented in a grand, knowingly humorous style distinguished by star power, a strong female slant and the latest in stunts and effects.

Yet in the hands of genre-jumping director Ang Lee, the pretty-pretty world of fringe cinema crunches straight into hardcore chop-socky to produce a film that has, quite rightly, been labelled the first "martial arthouse" movie.

With its gift for showing things that can't be described, Crouching Tiger's blend of the magical, the mythical and the romantic fills a need in us we might not even realize we had.
