The love song at the end of the film was performed by Leslie Cheung, and as a gimmick, the song was not released to buy in any way so people who enjoyed the song would have to to re watch the movie in theaters. See more »
The original release had a montage of scenes recapping the movie playing over the credits set to the song "Red Cheeks, White Hair" sung by star Leslie Cheung. Current releases keep the montage but it now plays with an instrumental score. See more »
Wow. I can remember watching this film with my mouth hung in amazement.
It's amazing how the story really drew me into the film. Greatly choreographed swordplay and action, typical standard of Hong Kong cinema. Interesting death scenes include impalement & slicing up of people. The romantic part of this film really adds to the atmosphere (the tendersweet waterfall scene) and Brigitte's performance as Lien Ni Chang really helped her character shine. I've never felt myself cringe as much I did during the "leaving the cult" ceremony.
Whether it's for the action or romance, the Bride with White Hair is really entertaining & highly recommended for viewing pleasure.
