The dusk picture highlights the historical significance of the old photographs
19 February 2019 | by yoggworkSee all my reviews

The dusk picture highlights the historical significance of the old photographs. The whole film is basically free of nonsense and the plot is very attractive. The 3 starring role is also in place. 2 supporting actors are also funny. Why is the same anti-Japanese drama, people can play such a good positive play, and Tan * only brainwashing and brainstorming or the golden robbery of this funny type.
