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.

Classic anticipation
8 January 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Well, replying to your strange "experiment", I may also tell you that I saw this movie since it has already been released on VCD/DVD. Classic story, this movie is more of interest as another step "forward" in Chinese Cinema, since it has been directed by a young FEMININE newcomer amongst Chinese directors. Another co-production with Hong Kong (it is referenced as a HK-movie, even if the most part of the technical staff, scriptwriters, director and actors are all from Mainland and the movie even has been shot there), this movie takes brand new paths within the Chinese movies. If the subject is a classic one for the Occidental movies, it should be perceived as relatively new within Chinese movie industry and might be a leading form as for a whole bunch of similar products popping up there in the next months. At least, the typical Cinema of the "6th Generation" is eventually overdue for a new form of movies inspired from a worldwide cinema production. It is also a perfect example as of the more comprehensive Chinese Censorship, since murders and even an erotic scene are pictured within the movie - something which was still largely forbidden a few years ago. A whole new bunch of new film directors open the path to a whole new direction of the Chinese movies and with the precious help of the formidable Hong Kong know how you may bet on the "soon-to-come" birth of a very strong Cinema movement from Mainland China. Can't wait for it.
