Leslie Cheung as front page model in City Magazine.

In this particular posture and make-up, looks like Leslie is portraying a unisex image (male and female in one)? Am I right?

 May 27, 2001 'Happy Together' scenes in BMW advertisement

BMW Advertisement

Recently, film director Wong Kar Wai has filmed an advertisement called 'The Follower' for BMW.

In the advertisement, there are scenes similar to Leslie's film 'Happy Together'. There was a shot in the advertisement showing the driver speeding on the motorway (highway/freeway) in America. This was very similar to Leslie driving in Argentina in 'Happy Together'.

emm...... interesting..... how come the advertisement is for BMW, yet, the BMW is not in the main focus? But, the other car (what car is it?) is in main focus?!
From the photo, looks to me it's the BMW Z3 model? As far as I remember, that model has already been out for quite a long time! I have got one when it first came out. My comment on that model is, if you love high performance sports car, you will certainly feel disappointed!! BMW M3 is the best for speeding or doing 180! As for Z3, it's good as a toy car, just like the Volks Wagon Beetle!
BMW Z3 has been used in a recent 007 film, so, of course, to some extent, people will have the wrong impression that it's extremely high performance!!!!.
If you prefer a more unusual look among the BMW series, M8 is quite a good choice (don't know if it's still available, I had it similar time as I got the Z3, ie a few years ago), the look is completely different from the normal 3-series, 5-series, 7-series. I would describe the M8 very similar to Mercedes SL, in terms of price and performance.
