Brand new film clips have been released for The Assassin, which opens across the UK on January 22nd. The Wuxia film is helmed by Hou Hsiao-Hsien, who won the Best Director prize for it at Cannes.

The movie has also got a BAFTA nomination for Best Film Not In The English Language.

The official synopsis reads;

9th century China. 10-year-old general’s daughter Nie Yinniang is abducted by a nun who initiates her into the martial arts, transforming her into an exceptional assassin charged with eliminating cruel and corrupt local governors.
One day, having failed in a task, she is sent back by her mistress to the land of her birth, with orders to kill the man to whom she was promised – a cousin who now leads the largest military region in North China.

After 13 years of exile, the young woman must confront her parents, her memories and her long-repressed feelings. A slave to the orders of her mistress, Nie Yinniang must choose: sacrifice the man she loves or break forever with the sacred way of the righteous assassins.

Check out the new clips below, along with the film trailer.
