a fairy tale
29 December 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

If you love fairy tales, this film is for you. If you are interested by Chinese mythology , this film could be usefull. Because it is easy to blame it when you expect what it is not. And a delight to discover smart and interesting use of CGI for resurrect a fascinating universe. A story of appearences, well crafted , giving beautiful show and nice moral lessons. Sure, it is not a Hollywood blockbuster but it has the virtue to be what you know , if you are familiar with the Chinese films from same genre. It is not a perfect film. But it is a real good one. Maybe, because the purpoise is not exactly to impress for visual force - it does that in many scenes in decent manner - but to propose a great love story and a coherent and interesting story about power and its high price. So, a beautiful fairy tale.
