Tragic Asian romance story with a good dose of action.
A classic Asian romance story where the most beautiful love relationships, just as flowers who were on the brink of blooming, can never fully open up and prosper peacefully. Even though I saw the plot twist coming from miles away, I couldn't bring myself to believe it; this movie is very intense and the emotion maelstrom continuously raging throughout the film finally explodes in the end into one of the most powerful moments since books I've read from Hugo. I might still be under the movie's spell, but I really did find the main characters extremely well developed and I really felt for each of them; I recommend this movie to fans of 'true' romantic love stories with some punches and a few gun shots. Movies like these prove to me that the best movies often don't come out of Hollywood.
