In the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, female characters leap across rooftops, stride up the sides of buildings, and somersault through the air. One woman literally goes out on a limb to engage in bewitching swordplay while balanced precariously above the forest floor. Although their gravity-defying feats are enhanced by technology, the strength, agility, and poise inherent in their movements are inspiring.
