• Originally 120 minutes long, but around 10 minutes were deleted in the Chinese version.
• Producer ‘Beaver Kwei’ first worked with ‘Zhang Ziyi’ and Ling Lucas on the film Hero by Yimou Zhang.
• This is the first contemporary mainland China film where the producers had the final cut rights instead of the director.
• Many crew had cameo roles in the film. The director was in the movie theater. CJ rep Mr. Kim, producer Beaver, behind the scene video, the ADs were in the elevator. One of the top Chinese super model Jacqueline Zhao also had a cameo in the film as well. Beijing mega club China Doll manager Aiwan played the publishing editor in the film. —IMDb
• It’s Ziyi’s first appearance in such an avant-garde film. Compared to many of Zhang Ziyi’s other films, Sophie’s Revenge has a much more ordinary and simple plot while the costumes are more contemporary. Zhang even wears more than ten nightgowns.
• The story, set in Beijing, features top Asian stars and Chinese remakes of bouncy K-pop tunes, but shows no hint of regional color and strictly limits the camera to cosmopolitan venues like gyms and modern art galleries. —Wikipedia
• This is the first film Ziyi is producing.
