A Japanese artist (Ikebe), who had won the favor of the Cambodian royal family when he rescued their daughter during World War II, returns and falls for the now-grown princess, though neither realizes the other's identity.
Very gleeful mystery drama about snake spirit Madam White Snake able to transform into human form after a thousand years of meditation . She descends to earth and marries Hsu Hsien who saves her in his previous life. They live happily together until he learns the truth of his wife. I have seen this movie on good quality HK DVD with Chinese subtitles. For my opinion this joint HK Japanese production contains two different cinematic styles and different from ordinary HK movies of 50-60s Chinese ghost story about Madame White Snake is set in the Southern Song Dynasty and telling about beautiful place in China-West Lake in Hangzhou.I was living one year in Hangzou in 90s and after many years of travels cannot forget magic atmosphere of Lake of emperors. My rate is 7/10.
