A nice movie, beginning with the murder of a man who is the owner of a lending house. The policeman who invertigates asks for the help of an ancient monk who earns money by being a fortune teller (if I understood well what I saw at the beginning of the movie).
There are a lot of mysteries linked to this murder, that is followed by another murder as strange as the first one.
The ending shows that the two murders are related to a servant's revenge for the murder of his family 15 years ago.
Most of the movie is dialogues and investigations, and the only interesting fights arrive at the end, but they are too short and full of special effects and slow motion combined with freezing movements, so, it's a little bit disappointing, but it's still watchable for the fortune teller's methods of investigation and the mystery " flying " all over the movie, combined with a mysterious music too.

siuyiu: atumiwa 青 is most commonly translated as "indigo" in english, to match the 7 colours of the rainbow that isaac newton insisted there (he did it for religious reason; those in the art world know there are 6 colours of the rainbow).

yenchin: Recently I was watching Archive 81, there was this scene where a character in a videofeed who suddenly extended her arm out of the screen to choke the guy watching it. It made me wondering: What would happen if the guy was trained in martial arts?

yenchin: A similar thought caught me when I was watching "Kingdom" which was about hordes of zombies in historical Korea. How would Guo Jing & Co. fare against a zombie horde instead of Mongolians? To add the fun, zombie Greats retaining their martial arts!
