question about the following sentence "Against the benefits of Mainland coproduction must be set some acute disadvantages." I am confused about the structure of the above sentence. Is "Against the benefits of Mainland" the subject of the sentence? Could you please explain it to me? Thank you.

The sentence is grammatically correct but the word order is a little awkward. The writer is saying : * there are benefits (or advantages) from Mainland coproduction * there are however also some acute disadvantages from Mainland coproduction * the advantages and disadvantages of coproduction need to be weighed (or set against each other) - imagine a columnar list with the advantages in one column and the disadvantages in the other column

The sentence itself is wrong
