Beauty that lasts many lifetimes...
4 November 2003 | by (East Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film in San Francisco when I was working in a movie theater and have fell in love with it ever since. In ancient times, Lotus wants revenge for the wrongs that were done to her and she gets her wish. Flash many years later in China, a young woman has visions that she IS the reincarnation of Lotus, and many events in her life mirrors what happened to her in her previous life. Also, many of the people involved in her life look a lot like the people in the past. Will the past repeat itself? Will she go down the same path as before in her last life? It is a haunting beautiful film and worth owning. You really won't mind the subtitles at all because the film tells the story VERY well.
