Wuxia Fantasy THE BRIDE WITH WHITE HAIR to Make Its UK Blu-Ray Debut - New Trailer and Artwork

The Bride with White Hair
Ronny Yu's cult fantasy gets a new 4K restoration this November.


Director Ronny Yu's 1993 action-fantasy The Bride with White Hair is a key example of the Chinese Wuxia genre, combining martial arts and swordplay with supernatural elements. The film stars Leslie Cheung and Brigitte Lin as a pair of lovers who find themselves torn between their rival clans.

With a new 4K restoration, The Bride with White Hair comes to UK blu-ray for the first time on November 9th, courtesy of Eureka Entertainment.

Special features include English and Mandarin audio tracks; commentary by Asian film expert Frank Djeng; commentary and interview with Ronny Yu; archival 'making of' featurette; interviews with actor Joe Tay, screenwriter Jason Lam Kee To, composer Richard Yuen and editor David Wu. The disc comes packaged in a limited edition slipcase with a collector's booklet featuring new writing by James Oliver (first 2000 copies only).

Check out Eureka's new trailer and artwork below.


The official synopsis reads:

Ronny Yu (The Phantom Lover; Warriors Of Virtue; The Bride of Chucky) directs this highly operatic fable based on a well-known martial arts novel with Leslie Cheung (A Better Tomorrow; Farewell, My Concubine) and Brigitte Lin (Zu Warriors from the Magic Mountain; Police Story) as doomed lovers caught in the crossfire of warring clans.

Cheung plays Zhuo Yihang, a rebellious but extremely talented swordsman of the Wudang Sect (aka the Wu-Tang Clan, a fictional martial arts sect that appears in many wuxia novels and films). One day he meets and falls in love with Lian Nichang (Lin), the adopted daughter of a rival cult led by the villainous Ji Wushuang. Zhuo convinces Lian to leave the cult to be with him, a decision which will ultimately lead to death and betrayal.
