*Hmm… I’m still trying to figure out who this 4th “fab woman” is or will be…
Starring: Hu Ge, Ma Yili, Tiffany Tang, Xin Zhilei…
Watching the trailer alone is enough to give me the vibes of “As Tears Go By” and “Chungking Mansion”. It’s so Wong Kar Wai indeed. It looks promising, especially with a cast such as this!
@iris78 Your cup of tea?
