The Bride with White Hair 01/23/21
Reviewer Lee Broughton returns with a critique of Hong Kong filmmaker Ronny Yu’s magical, mystical, martial arts reimagining of Romeo and Juliet… in ancient China. Our star-crossed lovers from warring clans are redrawn: one is now a super warrior and the other a deadly assassin. Stylish cinematography, lavish sets, stylized interludes and an abundance of excellent wire work fight choreography result in a classy period action piece. Starring Leslie Cheung, Brigitte Lin, Francis Ng, and Elaine Lui. On Region B Blu-ray from Eureka Entertainment.
