Storyline

A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the Shanghai movie scene, with parallels to the true-life story of popular actress Ruan Lingyu. A simple girl is plucked from the countryside by a famous actor, who romances her and makes her a star, with unhappy results. The film's score is lost, but the engagement of Zi Luolan, an opera star (credited as Violet Wong), to play the lead opposite Jin Yan (Raymond King) was a sensation. Written by MoMA

Falling In Love Is Complicated
23 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a silent film from China made in 1931. It is about two leads in a film, Yan (Raymond King) and Ying (Violet Wong). They meet after hearing Ying sing while another movie is being shot. You, of course, don't get to hear the song, but it catches people's attention. Once they meet and work together, they fall in love. Is it forever? It is a drama, so don't bet on it. This film is not essential viewing, but its good. The two lead actors are fine. This film is paired on DVD with "A Spray Of Plum Blossoms", which is more absorbing, but this along with Blossoms is great value for your money. The condition of this film is very good, better than most films which are now available that were made at that time in China. Buy the DVD and watch both films if you have any interest in early cinema from China. Both films are worth watching.
