“The Last Supper” of Tiny Times full of mysteries

Guys, this is how you make movie posters. 

Why are Yang Mi’s knees chained? Who is Guo Biting’s knife pointing at? Why is there blood on Xie Yilin’s mouth?  Can you decipher this poster?

The poster for Tiny Times 4: Soul’s End should be put in textbooks about posters.   Titled The Last Supper, the poster, conceived by the director Guo Jingming himself,  contains clues for the viewer to guess the ending of each character in the film finale.  Fans have already started researching the original painting to try and find comparisons.   Can you figure out all the hints?

The film stars Yang Mi,  Amber Kuo, Bea Hayden, Chen Xuedong, Xie Yilin, Jiang Chao, Lee Hyunjae, Ren Youming, Shang Liao, and Vivian Dawson.

Some suspicious parts compiled below:

  • There are ten people and ten candles on the floor, and all but one of the candles are burning out. Do they symbolize the lifespan of the characters?
  • Why are Lin Xiao’s legs chained to the ground?
  • Who is Nan Xiang’s dagger pointed at and why?
  • Tang Wanru’s lips have red around them. Wine or blood?
  • Nan Xiang’s hands are on Gong Ming’s legs. What is their relationship?
  • Why is Gu Li’s holding a wig?  Is it a sign she will have and survive cancer?

Tiny Times cast immortalized in amber for posters

"Love is amber, for amber is the most beautiful corpse."

Amber Kuo in Amber.  I bet she picked her name because  Guo Jingming once wrote “Love is amber, for amber is the most beautiful corpse.”

If time could stop, if love and hate could freeze, if memories could become immortalized in amber, if your faces could remain forever ….  If time could slow down its march forward and never reach the soul’s end.  Then, I’ll have you forever and never lose you.

– Guo jingming

The great thing about having a magazine editor as your director is that even your posters have awesome taglines to go with them.  That and  Tiny Times has more photoshoots than all other youth films combined in an year.  The latest set of posters for Tiny Times 4: Soul’s End 灵魂尽头 is Amber- themed (the resin with dead bodies, not Amber Kuo)  and once more features  gorgeous cast of Yang Mi, Amber Kuo,  Bea Hayden/Guo Biting, Xie Yilin, Shang Liao, Chen Xuedong, Vivian Dawon, Ren Youming, Lee Hyunjae, and Jiang Chao.

For those of you in North America, the film is likely to air in the U.S. and Canada.
