About the project
The vivid colors, personal framing of performers, and delicate editing all contribute to achieving a genre photo that stays true to its roots. The red girl with an emotional face staring at the camera, expressing her feelings to the world.
The photo picked out a classic theme of emotion versus personal ambition, but in a way which was compelling and modern. The glimmer in her eyes is enough to tell anyone that hers is a romance in the making, which is then confirmed when the scene is made.
What was lovely about The Story of 90 Coins was its old-fashioned qualities. It was like a fairytale at times, and in a way that was truly immersive. The characters are delivered in such a loving manner, and then explored more diversely as the plot develops, that audiences will easily be swept up in the gorgeous swoop of the story, like a fable for urban teenager. The movie also picked out a classic theme of love versus personal ambition, but in a way which was compelling and modern (it is Zhiqi’s character who contemplates furthering her career instead of love).
