The movie begins with a story told by a young girl named Sarah about the legend of The Crow. The story states that when a person dies, their soul is carried to the afterlife by a crow; however, if that person's soul is at unrest, the crow has the power to bring that person back to life so that they can right the wrongs that were done to them before they can find peace.
The Crow is a 1994 American film adaptation of the comic book of the same name by James O'Barr. It was directed by Alex Proyas and starred Brandon Lee in what was to be his last film.
The film gained instant notoriety even before its release when Lee was killed in an accident during filming. Because of this event, the film has gained a cult following over the years. It was also Brandon Lee's first (and ultimately, only) non-martial arts role on film. Lee originally wanted the film to be shot in black and white in keeping with the comic and only have the flashback sequences in color. However, the producers disagreed.
