From Brushed in Light: Calligraphy in East Asian Cinema by Markus Nornes

  • Sickly green characters are rendered in an archaic style. The lettering below mimics the style of the Chinese, while adding a comedic effect by juggling the letters on the line. Below that, a distributor has added an alternative title as a subtitle that also matches the color of the original. The screenscape includes a calligraphic lantern.
