I watched the movie: A Chinese ghost story (or A chinese fairy tale), because the cover looked like a good horror story.
But it is a romance story about forbidden, forgotten and complicated love.
It does contain the characters for a horror movie but without the actual scary parts.
If you like romantic stories (no matter what) this might be the thing for you.
There is a confusing part in the beginning of the movie, but this ,I do have to say, will explain the rest of the story later in the movie.
It was good to watch, but since it was so easy to remember the story, it is a movie you’ll only watch once. (unless you really like the movie)
How the story goes: (without the flashbacks)
An official gets arrested for almost drinking water and is brought to the town that he needed to be.
The town hasn’t had much water for a while and need the official to find some in the mountains that no villager wants to go.
As innocent as he is he goes there for what he was ordered to do.
He arrives at a temple where there is lots of clean water, but something is living there that doesn’t want him to be there for the water.
He meets some one in the temple who saves his life.
These characters fall in love, but there is some one watching over her.
What would be the reason?
