Wish that there were a sounded version
6 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie is based on the famous ancient Chinese play written several hundred years ago, and the film crew did an excellent job of keeping the originality of the original work. It is rather sad that there is not a sounded version of this famous ancient play, but the silent version was good enough for its time: Remember, the era of 1920's China is dominated by martial arts flicks that guaranteed the box office success, and most non-martial arts flicks at the time met miserable failure in the box office. The film crew took a very huge risk in venturing into something that is not mainstream of the time, and surprisingly, they succeeded, this romance was a box office success, just like the martial arts flicks.
