Notes

  1. Film was shot on location in Shanghai, China.

jeggin This is really a great show alright. I've watched many show before including some show people claimed to be sad, this is the onli one that manage to make me cry, furthermore leave a sorrow feeling in me that after so long when i rewatch the show i can feel it still

Tiffany I really cried when it nearly end because I thought that it was a happy ending but it didn't. They both died but the girl didn't really died she just join the man to his death.

HK Neo Reviews All in all, Butterfly Lovers is really a pure commercial disappointment. Director Ma, who previously directed the brilliant emotional endings in films like Fly Me to Polaris and Funeral March is unable to reproduce the aforementioned form and quality. This flick is a dud in nearly all aspect of filmmaking. From the miscasting of Charlene Choi and Wu Chun, to the dislocated sound track and some unconvincing action directing from Ching Siu Tung and of course who can forget to put the blame on Ma’s shoulders as well. As unforgiving as I am, and notwithstanding the fact that I used to be a big fan of the Twins duo (back in the 2002’s), it is safe to pronounce that an astounding “NO” will be decerned from me. Not even Charlene’s cuteness can change the fact that this is a commercial failure and a critical failure of actual filmmaking … (Neo 2009)


I rate it 3/10

I That's because it IS the chinese version of Romeo & Juliet. However there is a better version a TV serie starring Dong Jie and Peter Ho.

firdha I've already watch this movie.. it's nice.. but I think it looks like "Romeo & Juliet" in Chinese version..^^ overall, the film is good..^^
