** Most of the video tapes/disks don't have this ending. In fact
this original ending of the film was cut when the film was first released
in Hong Kong in January 1993. I've heard of two reasons for the
cutting. One says it was supposed to be a new year film and
people wouldn't want to see a sad ending. Another one says a sequel
was planned during the film production while the ending had already
been shot, and, it was not desirable to make a sequel without Michelle's
character. Though apparently the sequel was never made.
Thunder Media (Taiwan) DVD does
contain the original ending which is cut from the Mei Ah and Mercury
DVDs of Butterfly And Sword.
