improving actress
25 October 2006 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

As the years go by, it is nice to see Zhao Wei mature and improve as an actress. She has consistently improved as an actress. From her immature early TV roles, she has begun to mature. We see this in such films as Green Tea and A Time To Love.

Both are art films that begin to showcase her growing acting range. In Green Tea, she plays two characters with opposite personalities. One is an introvert and the other an extrovert. She is quite believable in how she portrays each. In A Time To Love, she is able to express deep emotion without using any words - something that is difficult to do.

I think that from her, the best is yet to come.
