Storyline

It is 14th century Yuan Dynasty China, the country is under Mongolian rule and the star-crossed lovers, Jinha and Sullie, illegitimate daughter of a Mongolian commander, are caught in the middle. When her mother died, SullieÕs father, Taruga, took her away and later planned to marry her off to form an alliance with a powerful Chinese warlord. Things get worse when Jinha learns that Taruga was the person who ordered the massacre of his entire family. Fuelled by hatred, he masters his family secret martial arts, the Bichun Secret Art. Many top pugilists, who are also after the secret scroll, try to kill him. During one of such attempts, Junkwang, a rich and powerful son of a Han lord, helps Jinha. But fate has it that Junkwang is the person that Sullie is forced to marry. When Junkwang knows about their love, he plots to have Jinha killed. Written by <sukmolelono@yahoo.com>

My Comfort Film
27 February 2004 | by mikey-162See all my reviews

I visited the local video store looking for a film to add to my Chinese Cinema collection. There was a wonderful Chinese cashier that I would chat with each time I was there. I told her i was looking for a great martial arts film and she directed me to Bichunmoo. She told me it was a martial arts version of Romeo & Juliet. I nearly dropped it right there. I am glad I didn't.

Bichunmoo is my favorite movie ever - right there with Gladiator and Crouching Tiger. The flying and internal body explosions were sort of cheesy but still well done. The animated morphing of the two lovers from children to adults grabbed me at the start and the dance of death performed by Sullie showed a true individual strength and sensitivity few actresses have shown. The 10 warriors were cool as hell and the Namgung lover/opponent gave a stellar performance. His sacrifice was extremely touching and done very well.

I have given this movie a 10 and actually bought a $4000 projector to have Bichunmoo watching parties using the wall as my background. I love this movie so much that I watch it at least once a month. I hope to find something that inspires me as much.
