The Dance of Passion
The Dance of Passion 2006
     

This series is actually lifted from Chen Kaige's classic film, "Yellow Earth." The whole yellow tone of the film was used in this series.
The "town" that this series sets in is Shanbei area, the birth place of Chinese communism. Yellow Earth was also set in Shanbei, around the same time period, 1920-1940s.

Riches and Stitches
Riches and Stitches 2004

Kwong Wa is physically awkward in this series. He has no charisma or sense of a mob lord like Chow Yun Fat. His physique is so fragile--I can kick him and he'll collapse. Don't get me wrong, I like him in certain roles but not this one.

Gigi is constantly playing the definition of emotions, never really feeling the emotions. Enough said. I wish Bernice Liu was cast in this role instead, at least she'd be a better dancer. And for God sakes, if you're gonna dub Melissa Ng's singing voice with Priscilla Chan, why not dub Gigi Lai's singing voice too, her singing is terribly lacking.

Moses & Anne do not have any chemistry. Might have been a better collaboration with Maggie Cheung, who was originally cast for the part. For Moses and Anne, whenever they're talking to each other, it's like two strangers reading lines. No sexual tensions, no feelings. Anne was alright in here but not very interesting to watch. Very boring. Moses is attempting to fill a role that should have gone to Gordon Lam. At time successful in his portrayal of a stubborn country-bumpkin, he really lacks emphathy for the character. I would have preferred Maggie Cheung and Gordon Lam in these roles.

The story is not bad, but could have been a lot better. Those TVB writers are so lazy!
