Little Dragon Maiden is available in: Cantonese [Original] on Netflix USA
When Hong Kong's new wave, gravity-defying action-look hit the scene in the early 1980's, so did a new wave of actors; Canto-pop stars. Little Dragon Maiden intelligently mixed the old with the new to create pure golden magic as kung-fu fighting veterans Chen Kuan-tai and Lo Lieh joined relative newcomer Leslie Cheung in a far-out, costume-action love story that really cooks. Cheung garnered international recognition in John Woo's A Better Tomorrow.
Seeking to improve his combat skills, a young man falls in love with a woman with mystical powers, but his past stands in the way of their union.
