Gong Li is my absolute favorite. Her talent alone grabs me, but her beauty is quite another story. It's hard to watch her movies and not stayed glued to her. I can't take my eyes off her. Andy Lau is a marvelous actor, but Gong Li is the one I couldn't stop watching. This is the case with anything she's done. It's just the way it is. Some people grab you....some, just don't. Gong Li is kind of like Meryl Streep, the movie itself might not be so good, but Gong Li herself (or Meryl Streep, for that matter) is just terrific. And so, I loved this movie because of Gong Li alone. If she wasn't in the movie, I doubt I would have been nearly as interested.
Loved this drama, but too many of the subtitles were going way too fast. Even a speed reader would have a hard time keeping up. I had to keep stopping the video so I can read, often times having to go back to read what I missed. Otherwise, it's a drama.
