Number 7: This wallpaper worthy crime scene.

Creative angles and moving shots give  the When a Snail Falls in Love  trailer a film feel that I love. Here are my favorite shots and/or scenes from the trailer.

The  series is only 15 episodes and director Zhang Kaizhou promised a faster pace, better crime-solving, more combat, more soul, and less romance compared to the original. Let’s hope he delivers.  There is also a big train fight scene in Myanmar that should be a hoot.
