I'm envious of how well Michelle Yeoh has aged... preserved by MSG (humor).

Impressed they filmed this movie in English. That was a different experience for me.

Here's hoping 3rd chapter will be a happier story.

A sad love story and knightly actions are mixed in action film with wonderful scenes.

Beautiful cinematography, excellent legend like story telling.
The expression of love by the bandit turned hero towards to heroine by Ang Lee was done masterfully. At about 60th minute of the movie, the girl is taking a bath in a ditch filled water heated by stones by the boy (bandit). The boy expresses his interest to the girl with a song who first starts to sing in Chinese and then switches to Turkish assuming the girl would be Han( Turkic people). The song is the implication of his interest in the girl. The girl feels it perhaps understands it a little since she later asks the boy, " You thought I was Han, but I am Manchurian". This melts the ice between the girl and the boy.
