The best parts of the C-drama adaptation of fantasy romance Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles Peach Blossoms were the quiet scenes with leads Mark Chao and Yang Mi. The moments of connection and introspection built up their characters and the central romance alike, the world building and action scenes were the backup dancers to complete the tableau. The movie version with Yang Yang and Crystal Liu have to pack a lot of oomph into two hours and once of the worries is limiting the character development for the big screen action but from the looks of the latest preview there will be plenty of moody intensity and I couldn’t be happier. I love Crystal’s take in the previews on goddess Bai Qian, she’s even more haughty that Yang Mi pulled off and probably necessary to convey just how over it she is with the bullshit around her. Can’t this goddess just drink her peach wine in peace, she has no time for petty squabbles and mortal love triangles.
