An Outstanding Movie
I’m so glad I watched this movie. It was a beautiful love story and also showed the value of true friendship. Its got a little bit of everything, sword fighting, love story, friendship - the actors were excellent, the cinematography was beautifully done, music was heartfelt. I even thought the ending wasn’t your typical sad ending - no spoiler here - won’t do it. I highly recommend this movie.
