A couple of years ago I was watching a foreign swashbuckler without subtitles and had to leave halfway through. It had a pretty standard plot. A famous swordsman and his family are ordered killed. A friend saves the daughter by faking her death, she grows up to become a fighter like her father. Anyway one point which may help someone to i.d this for me was the patented move used by the swordsman and his daughter. A pirouette along the opponents arm finishing with a thrust to the head(?). The girl was very pretty and apparently quite famous but I can't for the life of me remember her or the movie's name or even the language (I think French).
Hope someone can help.
