CGiii Comment

It's that old arranged marriage thing...with a martial twist.

Well-filmed, excellently edited, lovely music...this is how you give a fresh approach to a familiar subject.

Well done.

The struggle between responsibility and duty plays out in this lyrical exploration of martial arts.
