42-year old Chinese actress and film director Xu Jinglei, who has been absent from the big screen for years, has staged a strong comeback via a movie called Battle of Memories.

Xu recalled her first impression on reading the script.

"I had been very busy with my own film projects. While I was asked to read this story, I was desperately busy dealing with several other scripts simultaneously. But as soon as I began reading it, I found the Battle of Memories is the best one I have ever read in years, so I felt very excited."

The $20-million movie tells the story of a famous novelist who tries to recover from a painful divorce by having parts of his memories wiped.

The novelist finds himself loaded with the memories of a serial killer when he tries to recover the ones he lost.

Veteran actor Huang Bo co-stars with Xu and acts as the novelist.

Battle of Memories is being lined up for release in Chinese cinemas in April.
