Though many movies claim to be unique, Farewell To A Warrior is truly in a class of its own; it is Hong Kong cinema’s only big budget Teochew opera spectacular reportedly made at the bequest of Hong Kong business magnet, investor and philanthropist, Li Ka-shing.  

Starring renowned diva Hsiao Nan-ying, the film is a vivid dramatization of the 13th century Song Dynasty battle that pitted the legendary General Chang Ta against the Mongol hordes. Director Chor Yuen transforms traditional Chinese opera into solid entertainment, making Farewell to a Warrior a joy for opera fans and movie buffs alike.
