Hua Mulan was a heroine who disguised herself as man to stand in for her father and joined the army in the Northern Wei Dynasty. That well-known story has been adapted for this movie.
Mulan’s commander Wentai was impressed by Mulan’s martial skills when she first joined. However, Mulan’s secret identity fell into increasing danger of being uncovered. Mulan and Wentai fought shoulder by shoulder and were both promoted.
As time goes by, they fall in love. However, their dream of tying the knot was broken by the emperor who decided to marry his daughter to Wentai in order to end the war.
Hua Mulan is being screened at the Spazju Kreattiva Cinema, Valletta tonight at 7.30pm. The film, in Mandarin with English subtitles, is being shown in collaboration with the China Cultural Centre in Malta.
