Director: Li Han-hsiang
Cast: Jiang Qing, Tian Ye, Chin Tao, Ma Ji
Li Han-hsiang's fertile creativity had driven him to repeatedly explore new directions, often establishing new trends. Black Bull and White Snake is one bold effort that had failed to produce lasting effects. It is a blend of chivalry tales and northern Chinese folk life, alternating between visceral action clashes and loving depictions of folk culture. The title refers to a man and his wife, he the strong, silent type and she the maiden as beautiful as the goddess White Snake. Strong samurai film influence is also evident. Chinese With English Subtitles.
