God! How can I see it in China!!!!!!
6 April 2006 | by heyunzhi1983See all my reviews

I've see some comments on foreign websites but little here in China where Joan Chen has lots of fans!

I really want to watch this art film and I'll appreciate you who can tell me when will this film be released in China, or any DVD copies in China? Thank you!

And I hear Joan Chen has already featured in another movie in China directed by Jiang Wen, a famous Chinese director and actor. It has been told that the new film is also at the state of post production. But there is no data about it in here.
