This Sexy China...
Michael Kerjman | 09/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A son of a Hong Kong tycoon moved to mainland China attracted with local Western-style rock band tunes to escape from a father's shadow and establish himself as a self-made-man. Accepted by rockers, travels and works with musicians, experiencing personal matters and witnessing strange realities of newly re-united country.

Probably, by so common in rockers' environment motorbike incident (in 1992 Victor Tsoj of Russia, more known regionally among these tragedies) having a death of an innovative band front-man inflicted, an idea of impossibility to speedily modernize a huge populated country is somehow being attempted.

Relatively young age of characters-twenty-twenty five years-allows suggestion that a next movie sequence will reflect a fulfillingly-developed careers of talents in new China, in spite tragedies they overcame at the century fall.

Personally, I like this movie for a vibrant, youth-optimistic, sexy saturation it spreads around.
