a truly based and fantastic film!!, 8 August 2004
Author: eleanorsoul ( from tianjin China

I saw this film a few weeks ago when it showed on CCTV China.I'm so into it and Jon Brandis(and it was the first time I knew about him)--he was soooo great in the movie!! And I was shocked when I knew he's on the heaven.I went to a wet that's set to memorize him and found out how he died. I began to consider about this luxurious-and-full-of-dreams-looking show-biz group. It isn't that good all the time, right?

Back to this movie, the shootings are beautiful, the acting and songs are brilliant.I bet there'd be people from all ages like it,including my mom and I(I'm 18 years old).

I rate this movie 9.5 plus a special 10 for Jon Brandis.We like you and forever.
