The literal translation of the title of this movie is: Autumn Sky of the Capital.
Mr. Pei-Si Chen is famous Chinese actor for his roles in comedies, but this movie is a drama, really not much comedy here. Obviously, this movie did not produced the top-quality reviews among Chinese audience like his previous comedy works had accomplished. Perhaps Mr. Pei-Si Chen should have watched the result of Mr. Jim Carrey going to drama and think before he does the same. In fact, Jim Carrey faired better in that at least, his transition to drama was not direct, for example, from typical comedy to drama/comedy, such as Peggy Sue Got Married (1986). Furthermore, Mr. Jim Carrey's transition was gradual, playing supporting roles instead of lead, which Mr. Pei-Si Chen did. It was hard for the Chinese audience to accept the sudden change of comedy to drama because they were expecting comedy from Mr. Pei-Si Chen.
