Deadful Melody (1994)

Summary: I loved it
One of my favorite movies of all time, Deadful Melody is made in the best form of new wave wuxia, with everything I love. Brigitte Lin is better than ever with her serious/cold look, & I wish she did more roles like this. The only downer is the ending, which is less than perfect. But hey, it's a HK movie. I've seen over 350 of them, and maybe 5 have satisfying endings.

You have to be a fan of the genre to appreciate this little gem. Just like one has to be a fan of Westerns to really appreciate Westerns - and since I don't like Westerns, I may think they're stupid. Fans would of course argue with me.

Definitely not a film made for Westerners, and for that I recommend it only to fans of the new wave wuxia genre.
