A black-white film about a young director who made his new movie against drug-addiction but ironically the only person interested in his movie was a rich drug dealer and he also had to transfer drugs for the dealer to get the money for the film.
Obviously the story sounds pretty funny but this film just does not pay too much attention to make it more intriguing, instead the plot is a little bit loose, it also involved the relationship between the young director and his newly-found leading actress of his film.
Reality sometimes can destroy every beautiful dream, this is a cruel truth no one could ever deny. And director is an emotional job, sensitive and full of unknowns, every director has to give up his original intention to fulfill his films. It's a world of compromise, no one can avoid it.
In this film, someone will quest the value of the director's work, the different world between acting and real life. Wild innocence means we should all keep something we don't intend to change and keep the uniqueness which distinguishes us from other individuals, so should movies.
The film shooting scenes in this movie are well done, I love the feeling of living in a dream which I can not be aware of, I do not mean the illusion caused by drugs, it's a more natural way to touch the inside.
