This movie is a masterpiece in some sense. The cinematography is very well done. It's not the best Asian movie ever, but one of the best (I thought). The genre isn't common in movies(not as far as I know). I saw the "full" genre to be action ,romance ,period ,fantasy ,drama. But that's what good about it. It's different and in some sense "rare". They should really make more high quality movies like this. I thought it was always entertaining the whole way through, non-stop. Interesting to watch. It was a tragic romantic movie. Good action scenes and superb acting. I loved the way the characters interacted with each-other. The thing about this movie is that it's not a movie you just watch and forget about and say "That was a good movie". It's something you really should think about. It has a great meaning.
It's quite sad at the very end. But it does a wonderful job in making you wonder what will happen next in the sequel(The bride with white hair 2). If you're looking for something different than all these Western movies, than watch this one for sure. And If you're going to watch it, watch the subtitled version. It's much, much better than the dubbed as with most foreign movies.
