“A Touch of Zen” is a martial movie about the attempt by a scholar and painter named Gu to help prevent a corrupt Eunuch Wei from arresting and killing Yang. The story, told through Gu’s eyes, unfolds when Gu, who lives with his mother, gets Ouyang as a new customer. He wants his portrait painted, but Gu soon realizes that he is an army commander looking to arrest Yang. Armed with this information, Gu befriends Yang, and together they set to take revenge against Eunuch Wei. The Eunuch’s corruption dealings had come to light courtesy of Yang’s father, and to silence them, he sets to eliminate Yang as he did with her father.
