As well as having an eye for the dramatic - such as yards of cloth tumbling from a height or flames licking up a wall - Yimou also has a way of conveying the emotion of a scene with incredible brevity.

Its dark wit and fiery pace ensure that even the occasional overheated moments carry conviction.
