Despite Li Ching, This Did Not Grab Me
This is a film about the movie industry, about favors, hooking up etc. It is mostly set in Copenhagen and the story begins with the son of a big producer going to Copenhagen from Hong Kong trying to seal a deal. He gets involved with the Denmark girls. I have to admit that its not good that the best thing I can say about the film is some of it is in English, so its not difficult to follow. There is nudity, not too gratuitous but its there. Li Ching gets involved in this and I wish she didn't. This is the first film of about 10 that I've seen her in where she doesn't quite appeal to me, despite her obvious beauty. I cannot recommend this film, its muddled, the story doesn't keep you interested and its somewhat dated. My one smile: At a club, the people there are dancing to a muzak version of Bread's "Make It With You". I don't know if it was intentional. Despite Li Ching, I'd say skip this.
