Wild Grass Trailer

"I was once told that beauty should never be shared." Shanghai Jingshu Pictures has released an official US trailer for the Chinese romantic drama titled Wild Grass, marking the feature directorial debut of director Xu Zhanxiong. The film is a love story and generational drama following the intersecting city lives of several young people in China during the 1990s. In the 1990s, the two girls and a boy who first entered the society tested the incredible destiny they experienced in the pursuit of a new life. In the flourishing 1990s, they rose up with the dream and they survived. Starring Ye Gao, Ma Sichun, Elane Zhong, Johnny Huang, and Sunny Wang. It wasn't expecting much from this, but it's ravishing trailer. I love the vibrant title cards, I love the dance sequences, the film looks passionate and intensely emotional. This might be a nice discovery.

Here's the official US trailer (+ Chinese poster) for Xu Zhanxiong's Wild Grass, direct from YouTube:
