What happens to Zhang ziyi (Jen) in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon when she jumps off the cliff .. she dies? becomes immortal? Just before jumping what does she want Lo to become - a master?

Why does she jump off, guilt?

    at that stage, she was tired of living a double life. she fell in love with being a bandit with the nomads. the bridge was said to grant a wish to those who jumped off. she gives this wish to Lo and dies, falling down into the valley below. it was just a romantic way to end the film, imo – Nicholas Aysen Jul 18 '16 at 11:56
  • This might be her leftist way of enlightenment, when she needs nothing in life, so she takes the only thing she has been following all along, the Green destiny sword. – ABcDexter Jan 15 '17 at 14:36
