There are more than one DVD version of this film. We have details on the following DVDs:
Since this is my personal favorite Shu Qi film I decided to get a hold of the more expensive korean DVD, and compare it to the Hong Kong version. They are almost identical, but more on this later.
The film is on par with other Hong Kong DVDs of its time, with the kind of flaws we've gotten used to. The transfer is slightly fuzzy in some places, and in a few instances there's a little dirt on the negative, but I've seen far worse in newer films so it didn't bother me. The transferrate seems to be a bit low from time to time. The result is some jittery backgrounds whenever the image is not moving, and a "ghost" effect in fast scenes. But the overall image is clear, and has a good contrast, with fairly solid blacks, and decent colors. The subtitles are white, with a black edge, and in a large font, making them very easy to read.
The Korean version has several small errors: First, the filmformat is listed on the cover as a 2,35:1 widescreen. It's not. It's only 1,85:1 but this is how the film was shot. Also, when you choose the spoken languages, if you pick Cantonese you get Mandarin and vice versa. The Korean menus are in English only, and easy to navigate through. The extras are identical to the Hong Kong disk, except that the profiles are in Korean only. All in all I would recommend the HK version, simply because it's cheaper.
