View Full Version : Know this movie?
02-10-2005, 11:08 AM
I was hoping someone could help me find the name of this movie that I caught the end of one night on t.v. at a hotel in Nanjing, and just that last 10 minutes really caught my interest. Unfortunately, all I know about it is that it was filmed in Macau.
Anyway the end of the movie shows a bloody ghostly asian chick - chinese i'd guess - walking towards a young man on the top of a building, purportedly to kill him. When she gets close to him there is a flash back scene that shows the couple's history together, ending in her depression and eventual suicide/accident off of a building and onto a car. It seems she has been killing people until now, and decides to stop at this realization. I'd like to see the rest of the movie so if anyone can help, thanks in advance!

I'll try to help you out as best as I can. From your description of the ending, it kinda sounds like the film INNER SENSES. Do you know if Leslie Cheung starred in the film? Here is a link where you could check out a review for the film INNER SENSES. I hope it is the film you are looking for. sogoodreviews.com (http://www.sogoodreviews.com/reviews/innersenses.htm)

Ya know, I've got that movie and I've watched it but I'll be damned if I remember anything from it.
I popped the DVD in the computer and grabbed a screen capture of the chick. Is this her...
Hell, maybe I should watch it again because it all looks new to me now.

Thanks guys that looks like the movie. Unfortunately I couldn't see the picture because it resides on a server with the name "blog" in it which unfortunately means it's not China friendly, but upon further research I saw some scenes that jogged my memory at the site: http://www.mandiapple.com/snowblood/innersenses.htm.
So I'll go out and buy it soon. Thanks again!

That's very peculiar. I always host my images from a blog webpage and haven't ever heard of problems viewing them before. I wonder what's going on with BLOGGER that's "not China friendly"?

For what it's worth, the background image of the girl on that website is just like the image I posted above.

In my area of mainland China (beijing) several sites are blocked based on what I feel are levels of accountability and content. Therefore sites with the word 'blog' or an angelfire, aolhometown, geocities etc. are not accessible to me. The BBC is also blocked, along with sites like my own containing the word 'china' that are not recognized by the filtering system. I think that there are similar issues in the rest of the mainland.

Ah, read this small little thing about just that...
China encourages Internet use for business and education and has 87 million people online. But communist leaders also try to control what the Chinese public sees, blocking access to material deemed subversive or pornographic. (art: cbsnews.com)

Saw this over at KFC (that's Kung Fu Cinema by the way, NOT the chicken house)...
Microsoft Censoring Websites in China
Internet News Source: taipeitimes
A spokesman said the software giant works with Beijing to restrict access to Web sites and censor subject lines on Web logs that include forbidden language. Chinese bloggers, even on foreign-sponsored sites, had better choose their words carefully. The censors are watching. Users of the MSN Spaces section of Microsoft Corp's new China-based Web portal get a scolding each time they input words deemed taboo by the communist authorities, such as democracy, freedom and human rights.
Prohibited language in text, please delete, the message says.
However, the restrictions appear to apply only to the subject line of such entries. Writing them into the text, with a more innocuous subject heading, seems not to be a problem. Microsoft staff in China could not be reached immediately for comment. However, a spokesman at the tech giant's headquarters in Seattle acknowledged that the company is cooperating with the Chinese government to censor its Chinese-language Web portal.
Microsoft and its Chinese business partner, the government-funded Shanghai Alliance Investment, work with authorities to omit certain forbidden language, said Adam Sohn, a global sales and marketing director for MSN. But he added, I don't have access to the list at this point so I can't really comment specifically on what's there.
Online tests found that apart from politically sensitive words, obscenities and sexual references are also banned. MSN Spaces, which offers free blog space, is connected to Microsoft's MSN China portal. The portal was launched on May 26th, and some 5 million blogs have been created since then, Microsoft said. The Chinese government encourages Internet use for business and education but tries to ban access to material or Web sites deemed subversive.
A search on Google for such topics as Taiwan or Tibetan independence, the banned group Falun Gong, the Dalai Lama or the China Democracy Party inevitably leads to a site cannot be found message. The consequences of defying government limits can be severe: At least 54 people have been jailed for posting essays or other content deemed subversive.
Internet-related companies are obliged to accept such limitations as a condition of doing business in China. And government-installed filtering tools, registration requirements and other surveillance are in place to ensure the rules are enforced. The government has recently demanded that owners of Web sites register with authorities by June 30th or face fines.
Sohn said heavy government censorship is accepted as part of the regulatory landscape in China, and the world's largest software company believes its services can still foster expression in the country. We're in business in lots of countries. I think every time you go into a market you are faced with a different regulatory environment and you have to go make a choice as a business, he said. Even with the filters, we're helping millions of people communicate, share stories, share photographs and build relationships. For us, that is the key point here.
The international media advocacy group Reporters Without Borders has protested the online limits, sending letters to top executives of Microsoft, Yahoo, Google and other companies urging them to lobby Beijing for greater freedom of expression. In terms of the reality of the situation, those business deals are going to continue as globalization expands, said Tala Dowlatshahi, a spokeswoman for the group. "ut we want to make sure that pressure is being put on the companies to pressure the Chinese government to ensure a more democratic process.
