Who knew a Sword could have memories too. At least that's what the International (or is it just German?) title would have believe. But whatever the title is you are watching this, if you like Swordplay and romance in your Eastern movies, you will enjoy this too. The action is filmed greatly, something we came to kind of expect, this time coming from Korea.
Koreas action cinema may not get a lot of credit generally by people who just go to the movies watching the big Blockbusters (nothing wrong with that, everyone has to have their own taste in films), but if you open up your horizon and don't mind how unrealistic some of the stunts would be in the real world (see flying), than this can be more than entertaining to watch
