邵氏公司的白蛇传那部电影我以前看过,实在很动人的一部爱情故事。这部新的电影我看一定也是很精彩。因为张曼乐是个好女演员,她演的戏,大部份很不错。
现在就让Lawrence小弟你講这个故事给我们听听吧!

Hi Diane,

Maggie Cheung's version is slightly different from Lin Dai's as it focus more on the Green Snake developement. In the movie, it shows her diffculty to comprehend human emotions, love, hatred and lust .. Oops, haha ... On this blog , I shall 'censor' those erotic scenes ..

Lawrence,

Thanks for your recaps of this movie, it's fun to see what different remakes do with classic folk tales such as this one. Like Diane, I too have seen SB's version with Zhao Lei as Xu Xian and Lin Dai as White Snake. I haven't seen this version with Joey Wong and Maggie Cheung, but it sounds more "realistic" by showing her difficulties in understanding human emotions :)...
