Quite a shock of how good Mr. You Ge is in drama
The literal translation of the title of this movie is: the Old star and the new star.
I must admit that I was quite shocked by this movie because of the excellent performance of Mr. You Ge in drama. Mr. You Ge is generally known in China for being famous as an actor in comedy, but he is just equally at home as in drama. Mr. You Ge's most famous performance in drama is in the much more commonly known Huo Zhe (To Live), made three years later in 1994, which met the unfortunate fate of being banned in China (has the ban being lifted in China yet?), but this less known drama is an excellent example of he has already achieving that earlier.
