A photographer madly in love with a breathtakingly gorgeous woman. She's far more complex than he realizes, disappearing and reappearing in San Francisco, on the actual street where Kim Novak tormented James Stewart in Vertigo. It all adds up to a unique '80s blend of Hong Kong and Hollywood, a stylistically Yonfan double fixation.Written by

I bought this movie from Tai Wah Video of Singapore. I just sort of randomly picked a movie out of the bin. It was in PAL format, but I paid a company in Austin $20 to convert it to VHS for me. One of my Chinese friends watched it and said it was a stupid film. But I thought it was worth a watch. Some of the English subtitles seemed to go off the screen, nevertheless I was able to follow the story more or less.
It's about model photography and a magic orb, and it takes place in some urban Chinese city (Hong Kong maybe), then later in San Francisco.
The music was so-so.
I like to expose myself to foreign languages and cultures - I'm not really looking for the best seller, you see. So I recommend watching this film for the foreign exposure. There's a funny goofy guy that helps break the monotony.
