Storyline

When the leading dancer of Lola is murdered in her dressing room on the very night of the premiere, terror looms over the dance troupe. With the murderer still at large, the coveted role of Lola passes to Tian, a talented but introverted dancer with a traumatic childhood. Suspicion fanned by jealousy soon leads to hostility and rejection from fellow dancers, while figments of childhood memories start haunting her every dream. Tian can only seek solace in the arms of her gaffer boyfriend Zhen. As the murderer strikes again, Tian begins to realize that all the slayings are somehow related to her. No sooner is she inextricably sucked into the curse of the role than she starts suspecting Zhen may actually be harboring a horrifying secret behind these murders and the troupe itself.

Watchable at least once but I personally wouldn't see it again
13 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is really slow without having enough momentum or weight to it. The premise isn't that original either. It's about the death of a girl in a play when the protagonist that has a traumatic past wanted the role that was given to the other girl but soon the other girl is found dead. Than the lover of those two girls gets mixed in and so on. And the killer is on the lose. But who is it? The thing is despite the ghostly aura when it comes to the cinematography this is a very slow moving movie which is fine but nothing got my attention and it just bored me. I was expecting a erotic thriller or a ghost story but that isn't the case for this movie and goes in a narrow direction. Although it does have hallucinations and nightmare like scenarios. The music and the dream like feel to this movie works though. If had more of the psychological or artistic elements that is incorporated into this flick well it would have been a upgrade. "Black Swan" did a better job. This isn't a bad film and it's watchable at least once since it picks up on the last few minutes but I personally wouldn't see this movie again. This is the first movie I seen with Tian Yuan and not only does she have a pretty face she puts on a good performance. It's a shame she hasn't gotten that many roles cause she is a likable actress to watch on screen.

6/10
