used in the film? Would you choose another time period and city
As we all known, Paris is the city of romance, in this film, there were some romantic stories with a happy ending. The 1920s was just after the World War One, and the film business was developing so fast then, so Paris and 1920s era was used in the film. I would choose the 1930s and Shanghai city, China, between the two world war, Shanghai city was the most developed city in Asia, and there were many young Chinese genius
came bake from abroad, which brought many advanced technologies in every aspect, including films.

Every one has purpose to be alive, we should do what we meant to do. If someone loses his purpose, he is just like a broken machine, which is useless. We should take an active part in this world, never like an extra part in a machine,
