The most beautiful love story ever told...

Tsui Hark, the master of action movie, gave us this incredibly beautiful love story.The direction is superb, the actors are great and you will find this strange but hypnotic sense of fantasy and poetry that you always find in the Chinese tales. If you don't cry at the end your heart is made of stone ! A unique masterpiece, a lot more better than Romeo + Juliet (a good movie, too!)
