The color scheme is different from the color scheme we know about the Chinese Kingdoms. All gone to grey, black, and white, but not a back & white film. Every single scene was stunning. The works of the director are always so beautiful. I wonder how he could make every frame so Zen. The story was good too that I couldn't help to google which part of the history which was based on right after finish watching.
