L² Comment:
When i read the novel, the story of Wu Xin Yun always fancy me but it really does not explain much on it. But this movie it created the twins character and lesbinate relationship instead, how true issit? But definitely Chi & Xu's are different from the original novel, no wonder Kam Yung is not that happy with this movie...


  1. I guess Loius Cha was upset as the story itself is ‘massacred' artistically. It can be quite interesting for those who are not exposed to 天龙八部。In the novel, there is no 巫行云, but only 天山童姥。

  2. but in the latest version, it did mention tong lou's real name is wu xin yun right?
