Did You Know?


In late Tang Dynasty, China, court physicians found a peculiar kind of snake that can be processed and used as medicine. Farmers hunted them in exchange for tax exemption. This is written history and the background of this movie. Although in real history the farmers were much poorer, snake hunting was their last resort to avoid famine. See more »

Epic! Breathtaking! Touching! A Heartwarming Love Story!
16 October 2019 | by mariannequintinioSee all my reviews

A Titanic love story that is taking place in China! It's the classic "star-crossed lovers" story that competes above and beyond Titanic (1997)'s Jack and Rose, but with popular and significant Chinese folktale elements! I am glad that Light Chaser Animation became true to its roots. There are some mild sexual content in it, but overall, the movie's breathtaking sceneries and plot overrides any of the movie's sexual connotations. Growing up with Japanese animation, I expect a Japanese anime-vibe to this movie. But it's more than that! It can visually stun both video game players and Disney & Pixar fans because of its action sequences, storytelling, music, and character development! This is the most beautiful, heartwarming, touching, and endearing film to hit China (and hopefully, North America)! But since there's not enough North American audience who are aware of the White Snake folktale; it's only playing in few selected theatres. But when it's out in English (whether dubbed or subtitled), I will definitely part with some of my money to purchase this thrilling tale!
