for music. and cast. for landscapes. and inspired script. but, more important, for the science to present a very old story and a slice of China past in a wise manner. it is an ambitious project. and the ambition is not a word in this case because out of technical tools or great performance of actors it is the propaganda interests. and this is secret ingredient of series. not a demonstration. only a realistic atmosphere and impressive fight scenes. and nuances of each character personality. a mixture of force, delicacy and sweet shadows. a fresco of China roots. and, in same time, a nice fairy tale. a large puzzle and crumbs of tradition. short - just impressive. that is all. total show.
