Director Li was a southerner, but he had spent a large part of his life in Peking

choreographic production — flirtation and angst combined with lavish spectacle
and tour de force dancing — took on the inevitability of mass- manufactured

For the IMDb fans, the female lead in Li's films is not a woman to be rescued or
conquered, but instead is treated as an equal by the male lead; as a friend, a
