The Sorcerer and the White Snake, previously known as, It's Love and Madame White Snake is an upcoming film directed by Ching Siu-tung and starring Jet Li. It is based on the Chinese Legend of the White Snake. The film will be in 3-D and will be shown out of competition at the 68th Venice International Film Festival. At its most basic, the story tells of a young scholar who falls in love with a beautiful woman, unaware that she is a thousand year old white snake that has taken on human form. A monk intervenes in order to maintain nature's law and casts the white snake into a deep well at Leifeng Pagoda. [wikipedia] Edit Translation
Cast & Credits
I felt this story had a nice moral and could be enjoyed by the whole family. And I've actually watched this movie twice, so I recommend you give it a try sit back and enjoy.
I am not a woman who needs to see romance in order to enjoy a movie/drama, but when romance is done right I understand why it's almost a must-have for so many. The couple in this film really pulled at my heartstrings. Despite their obvious differences, their love was so genuine and pure and their story moved me to tears. I loved this movie and I am so glad I just watched it instead of reading reviews that don't do it justice.
