A 4k restoration of director Ronny Yu’s action-fantasy – and Wuxia classic – The Bride With White Hair is to hit UK stores on Blu-ray from November 9th.

The highly-operatic fable is based on a well-known martial arts novel and sees Leslie Cheung (A Better Tomorrow; Farewell, My Concubine) and Brigitte Lin (Zu Warriors from the Magic Mountain; Police Story) tackle the roles of doomed lovers caught in the crossfire of warring clans.

With beautiful cinematography by Peter Pau (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and over-the-top action sequences, The Bride with White Hair is regarded as one of the best swordplay fantasy films ever made.

Keep your eyes peeled for Shimbun’s review.
