Anyway, I was definitely eager to check his directing debut, also starring Gong Li in her acting debut as well. First of all, it is a really gorgeous movie to look at. Only for this, it is worth a look. Furthermore, the acting was pretty impressive as well. I mean, Gong Li was only 22 years but she still manage to give a very good performance.
