I’ve always been a big fan of this movie since I started learning Chinese ten years ago and I’m very grateful for the restoration. Now I’ve revisited the thread and just learned about the revised version from a few years ago! I’m so excited to see it! @ElectricTriangle, I’ll send you a PM for the link. @satanika, thank you so much for the restoration!
PS: due to Chinese copyright law the movie has been in the public domain since 2015, so freely sharing it online should not be a problem.
