In order to obtain a legendary sword, YUN Chung-Chun leads a gang into the home of elderly master swordsman CHANG Shan-Gong, killing all but CHANG Shan-Gong’s son, TSAI Ying-Jie, before stealing the prized possession. Eighteen years later, TSAI Ying-Jie has grown up to become a master swordsman in his own right and sets off on a journey of revenge. On one occasion, he is poisoned and saved by a female warrior, Flying Swallow. He later discovers that Flying Swallow is actually YUN Chung-Chun’s daughter, who has been searching for CHANG Shan-Gong’s surviving son to atone for her father’s sins. Faced with this stroke of fate, will TSAI Ying-Jie choose to avenge his father or repay Flying Swallow for saving his life?
A box office success, The Swordsman of all Swordsmen is regarded as one of Taiwan’s most representative Chinese-language wuxia movies owing to its exciting action choreography that blends the “Northern School” of Chinese martial arts with Japanese bushido, as well as the philosophical questions about life injected by the protagonist’s inner struggle between obsession and letting go.
