Chinese actress Zhou Xun's latest film "Ming Ming" is slated to open in Chinese theaters on April 26.

The film won high praise at the 11th Pusan International Film Festival in South Korea last October.

Let's follow our reporter for a preview.

Reporter: Chinese actress-turned-singer Zhou Xun released her new music video "Look Look" on Thursday in Beijing. It's also the theme song for her new action film "Ming Ming". Zhou Yun collaborated with Hong Kong singer Anthony Wong to produce a rock song with just a hint of electronica, perfect for a film about legendary women living in a modern city.

Zhou Xun plays the two leading roles in her new film C twins called Na Na and Ming Ming, who have very different personalities. Na Na is hot and passionate, while Ming Ming is quiet and soft. Both girls fall for the same man, played by Hong Kong actor Daniel Wu.

Zhou Xun has shed the classic looks she projected in earlier films like "The Banquet", in favor of a more modern performance in her new film. The theme song she produced for "Ming Ming" is also a departure. The actress says she always likes to try different things, which is why she experimented with electronic music in her theme song.

"I like it. I think it's not interesting to keep singing the same style of songs. Just like an actress trying on different roles, you can taste a variety of music."

The film is the first feature-length production from director Susie Au, who is better known for her unique music videos.

With Taiwan singer and actor Jeff Cheung as the co-star, "Ming Ming" was praised by the audience when it previewed in Hong Kong last week. Hong Kong film critics have hailed it as a new genre of film that's never been seen before.
