Who can survive the vengeful blade of the Golden Swallow in COME DRINK WITH ME? A 35mm presentation!
When bandits make off with a governor’s son and hold him for ransom, the gov. retaliates with the big guns: the deadly Golden Swallow, his deadliest warrior and only daughter. Just as Golden Swallow begins ripping through the bandits holding her brother captive, she’s sidelined by a poison dart and re-habilitated by a local drunk who has his own share of secrets and hazy motives. Considered by many to be one of the best movies to ever come out of Hong Kong, Come Drink With Me elegantly blends elements of dance and martial arts, and was one of the first kung-fu films to feature a woman in the lead role.
Part of Nitehawk’s August KUNG FU THEATER midnite series.
