Green Snake

1993 / 99min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: TSUI HARK

A fresh, lyrical, sensual reading of the ubiquitous classic Chinese folk tale, Madame White Snake, about snake spirit sisters; this version shifts the focus from White Snake (Joey Wang) to rebellious little sister Green Snake (Maggie Cheung). Action maestro Tsui Hark, working outside his usual wheelhouse, creates a world of lush, vivid, mesmerizing dreamscapes, but he doesn’t skimp on the ace martial arts while doing so.
