Some articles gives some interesting informations about the film…

John stated that “Titanic” was a love story that took place on a ship. But “The Crossing” is a story of fate, as these characters were fleeing from the war-torn China to Keelung, Taiwan.

“The wartime background brought each person a different fate, so if there is any comparison, I would say it is closer to “Gone with the Wind”,” said John.

According to Woo, “The Crossing” is “a love story spanning fifty years of Chinese history.” He was anxious to emphasize that the film is a romance despite the fact that he is best known for directing male-oriented action films. It certainly looked romantic judging by the trailer, with some inimitable Woo set pieces, and strong hints of beloved Chinese themes of separated families, star-crossed love, and the tragedy of war.
