The film centres on the silk road and the trade industry back in the 3rd century and how central that was to all nations; involving them into commercial wars even.
Through the fight over the right of commerce, the film presents a humanistic approach. All races are equal. In a world that treats the dead better than the living, we need each other to survive. Place is an imaginary space. For a common goal, there are no nations. There are only brothers. Even we you get betrayed and your comrades turn their back to you to survive, use your pain as motivation.
We see people's obsession with money and power and the consequences of that obsession, from betrayal to malicious killing. The film tosses questions at us, insolvable once again. What is destiny and what is fate? Is the unification dream even possible? And what is Home?
A film full of breathtaking fighting scenes. Jackie can't help being hilarious. Emotional music, songs and a touching bromance. A beautiful film to watch.
