You need to feel it by your heart
25 February 2017 | by joyoscarSee all my reviews

Although it seems like this movie got more criticisms than the praises, it is still one of the BEST I have seen in the last few years. It has the depth and details you need to feel by your heart, not your eyes. Despite the excellent pictures you will enjoy during the two hours, the music choices are awesome too! Most of all, the lines have inherited the spirits of Karwai Wong! BRAVO Zhang Jiajia! Looking forward to your next work!
