Have you ever continually noted that you wanted to see a movie, yet never got around to seeing it? I have been doing that for years with The Goddess of 1967. I spot it at any of the DVD stores I frequent, make a note that I should see it, and then get charmed away by something new that I've been itching to see, or something old that I couldn't find before. It doesn't help that the one friend I know will probably be totally into it is harder to make plans with than, well, anyone who is really hard to make plans with.

But I've got to get this wrapped because Clara Law, who directed the film, is gearing up for her next feature. Variety reports that she is going to return to China to direct a romance called Like a Dream. Law says: "The idea for the film sprang from a conversation I had with a friend who remarked how much Shanghai these days resembles New York." So, aptly, the film follows an American-born Chinese person who becomes part of a romantic mystery, and the story jumps between Shanghai, Taipei, and New York.

Daniel Wu (Legend of the Black Scorpion/The Banquet), associate producer, is starring with Yuan Quan (Shanghai Rumba), and production is set to span from August to October.
