A fearless heroine… a kung-fu master in hiding… a seemingly invincible villain… and a film that’s universally regarded as one of the greatest ever made in Hong Kong.
The heroine is Golden Swallow (Cheng Pei-pei – Painted Faces; Crounching Tiger, Hidden Dragon – in a star-making turn). She’s been dispatched by her powerful father to rescue her brother who’s been taken hostage by bandits. The kung-fu master is Fan Da-pei (Heroes Shed No Tears; Rumble in the Bronx); he may look like a drunken beggar but he’s one of the best fighters around. Trouble is, the only man who can beat him is helping the bandits…
Directed by the legendary King Hu (A Touch of Zen; The Fate of Lee Khan) for the mighty Shaw Brothers studio, Come Drink With Me shook up martial arts movies and influenced everyone from Bruce Lee to Jackie Chan and beyond. No wonder 88 Films are so proud to present this UK Blu-Ray Premiere.
