For the Mark Zhao (“Ten Miles of Peach Blossom”) fans out there, you definitely must check out this movie. Or if you just love really well told stories of adventure and survival, this is a must see. It’s a visually stunning movie about two people who survive a plane crash in the Antarctic and must figure out how to find help in time. It’s a beautifully told story and, so far, one of the best Chinese movies I’ve seen.
Wow. I’m still in shock! They actually managed to keep these two in the drama adaptation of Three Lives Three Worlds The Pillow Book, another story in Three Lives Three Worlds universe. Amazing feat! Book 2 in Tang Qi’s Three Lives Three Worlds series is The Pillow Case, a dedicated love story between Bai Feng Jiu (Bai Qian’s niece, played by Dilraba) and Dong Hua Dijun (played by Vengo Gao). If you have watched Yang Mi’s Eternal Love, you’ll remember these two characters in there as well. In other news, the quick transcript has been approved for a drama adaptation (this one) and a 2-part movie adaptations (likely different casting for drama and movie versions).
Are you happy these two are re-uniting or are you in the camp of new faces?
Though this came out a year ago, since I found it again on YouTube, I had to share a review of one of my favorite Chinese comedies, Foolish Plan 《呆呆计划》, starring Jiro Wang (“Rakshasa Street”), Jordan Chan (Ip Man: The Final Fight), Lawrence Ng (Keeper of Darkness) and Lee Beom-Soo (Unforgettable). It’s a comedy heist movie along the lines of Ocean’s Eleven and delivers a really enjoyable story that I have watched more than once.
