Gong Li minus 1
12 October 2020 | by KingofzombieSee all my reviews

It took a lot of research to re-enact the 1980's training ground.

The games, Bai Lang's acting, the volleyball players ex and current all acted well.

But perhaps it is difficult to portrait coach Lang Ping. Even without her professional ball skills and built, her charisma and focus is hard to duplicate.

Gong can only try stare hard but well attempts. Her hair styling is also a joke.

If Chen Kexin is willing to cast wife Wu Junru as lead. I am sure Wu will study Lang Ping's character well.

Next to nothing, Gong Li is the only middle age known actress in China. Just wondering if Wu or Michelle Yeoh could have done a better job.

Or if coach Lang Ping could act as her older self.

Touching movie, great scene setup, great movie angle n wonderful cast.
