Storyline

It is 14th century Yuan Dynasty China, the country is under Mongolian rule and the star-crossed lovers, Jinha and Sullie, illegitimate daughter of a Mongolian commander, are caught in the middle. When her mother died, SullieÕs father, Taruga, took her away and later planned to marry her off to form an alliance with a powerful Chinese warlord. Things get worse when Jinha learns that Taruga was the person who ordered the massacre of his entire family. Fuelled by hatred, he masters his family secret martial arts, the Bichun Secret Art. Many top pugilists, who are also after the secret scroll, try to kill him. During one of such attempts, Junkwang, a rich and powerful son of a Han lord, helps Jinha. But fate has it that Junkwang is the person that Sullie is forced to marry. When Junkwang knows about their love, he plots to have Jinha killed. Written by <sukmolelono@yahoo.com>

Wonderful and heroic tragedy
8 August 2001 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It was a long long time since I saw a tragedy this good. Shakespeare meets Wuxia martial arts movies ;). And while the result isn't Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon it's extremely unfair to compare the two (CTHD is a already a true classic). Bichunmoo stands very well on its own without comparisons. Being a sucker for epics and tragedies as well as wuxia etc I can only say this is a happy marriage of the two genres. Had I been in another mood when I saw it, some of the love scenes might have been too much for me, but I am not one to complain as they are well played. The whole thing about this movie is you know whats coming, the doom is just hanging there, but still you are in it for the ride and you love it nonetheless... But that is the lure of all great tragedies. The martial arts and swordplay are not the best I have seen, but still top notch, entertaining and kind of entrancing in "dancelike" way. Scenery, costumes and photo is spectacular. But still, the heart a movie is the story told and this one's got it! Wholeheartedly recommended.
