"Li Hong in his first directorial effort (that I could find) mixes dance and drama for this stylish thriller. Hong uses few words that assist the international viewer to focus on the cinematography. Tian Yuan (Luxury Car) assumes the role of Lola in a major dance troupe production when she observes the death of the leading actress. The wild dances of the character with flaming neon red hair and the choreography are highly stylized. Francis Ng (A Man Called Hero, One Last Dance) is a stagehand with a long list of past loves. His newest is Tian who assumes the role, but his previous love was the girl who was killed. The film proceeds languidly to the somewhat predictable rooftop climax and the unveiling of the true killer. Most interesting for the use of dance and the mix with drama, this stylish thriller is worth a night's viewing. Enjoy!"
