This is not a movie I would normally choose. I went through the new acquisitions list, read the description and said why not? My tax dollars have already purchased it, if we don't like it after 20 minutes we'll turn it off. After 5 minutes I was ready to be done, but... it actually was quite good. The visual style was quite unique and stunning-a blade slicing thru rain drops. Suspend reality a bit, and enjoy. If you enjoy martial arts you are probably on the hold list already. If you aren't a big fan of that genre I still recommend seeing this very particular love story wrapped inside the martial arts. One scene involves the love interest in a beautiful dance of swords.
