Chinese director Zhang Yimou’s epic wuxia film draws inspiration for its bi-chromatic palette from the yin-and-yang symbol and Chinese ink-brush painting. During The Three Kingdoms (220–280 AD) era, a wounded military commander (Deng Chao) employs a doppelgänger (also portrayed by Deng) to replace him in public so that his kingdom betrays no sign of weakness.
