Plot: Life is fleeting as the butterfly, beautiful yet transient. As legends has it, a pair of butterfly lovers reappears once more after having gone through three lifetimes of repeated pain and tears.

Liang is highly skilled in martial arts and resides in the mountains. When his master tasks him to take care of Zhu, a girl from a wealthy family who disguises as guy to herself from revenge, it sparks off the painful journey that they must go through once again.

Zhu’s father, in order to pay the kindness shown to him, has betrothed her to a General Ma, although Zhu is in love with Liang. Love can fester into hate in some while in the selected few, it can lead to undying love that survives one lifetime after another.

  • The movie is based on the Chinese legend 'Butterfly Lovers' (Liang Zhu), a tragic romance between two lovers, Liang Shangbo and Zhu Yingtai, from whom the name of the legend is known in Chinese. The legend is regarded sometimes as the Chinese equivalent of Romeo and Juiet.

Butterfly Lovers
LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews_2/butterfly_lovers.html
«Jingle Ma's update of the classic Butterfly Lovers story wastes a good cast and an interesting concept with all-around poor execution. Fans of Charlene Choi and Wu Jun may still enjoy looking at the stars, but that may be the extent of their enjoyment.»
movieXclusive.com, by Stefan Shih source: http://www.moviexclusive.com/review/butterflylovers/butterflylovers.htm
«The synopsis above would give you an idea of what's to transpire, and it's nothing new for serial daters who hit the cinemas for their regular fix of romantic date-movies. »
