Brilliant mix of modern and legendary in Shangai!
28 March 2018 | by M1racl3sHapp3nSee all my reviews

This movie has found a way to breakthrough a lot of stereotypes and present a fantastic comedy where the so called regular reality and the fantasy world run parallel but only a few are allowed to see it. Ultimately, it's a story about love; modern love which goes beyond any barriers you could possibly imagine. The acting is brilliant and totally convincing. If you like fantasy garnished with a pinch of sense of humor in a sci-fi/ fantasy environment, you shouldn't miss this movie: entertainment granted!
