Jet Li: hero

Ok, so near the beginning of the movie Hero there's a scene where Jet Li fights Sky in a chess house. He asks the old man, "Sir, would you be kind enough to play us another tune?" Does anyone know what that instrument the old man is playing is called, and where I can get some more music played on said instrument?

Oh and is it just me or is this the best scene in any movie, ever :P

It is the best scene. Don't know what the instrument is called though.

Re: Jet Li: hero

Good movie??? Geez, i laughed so much at the tennis-like fight scene! Maybe that's what makes it good. Also the scene where jet li and a girl defends the temple from arrows with swords and garments...

Re: Jet Li: hero

Hah! this movie and most martial arts movies are cool. It's just a great way to escape into a fantasy world, much like dreaming about being a rock star, or reading Terry Pratchett, as anyone with any literary taste does :P

Terry Pratchett is a GENIUS! I have almost all the discworld books.

+1 on the fantasy world aspect. Its like a really long day-dream!
