Chen Kaige’s superbly crafted drama about internet and media abuse has a cast at the top of its game.

CRI: Caught in the Web reviewCF

FBA: Full Circle review

Comedy-drama about rebellious oldies is a beautifully played heartwarmer.

FBA: The Locked Door review

Well-composed but dramatically bloodless drama centred on a small-town single mother.

FBA: Meet in Pyongyang

Glossy China-North Korea co-production is intriguing but short on human drama.

Hong Kong filmmaker Peter Ho-sun Chan has started shooting his next directorial project following Wu Xia, a drama entitled American Dreams In China.

The film is described as a tale of friendship, loyalty and betrayal, following three university graduates who build a multi-billion dollar tutorial empire. Their rise and fall plays out against the backdrop of historical events in China spanning three decades from the beginning of economic reforms to the present day.

“This type of film allows almost anyone to be a director,” veteran mainland Chinese filmmaker and Academy Award nominee Gu Changwei, 54, told AFP.

“I can see feedback right after people have watched and I am able to know what is good, and what can be improved,” said Gu. “Micro films present a real, direct communication between the director and the audience”.

Hong Kong films will have better access to the mainland China market following a revision of the Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement between China and its Special Administrative Area.

Huayi Brothers’ “Painted Skin: The Resurrection” easily hold on the top spot for another week with a strong $36.33 million over this past week, while it has hauled in $83.76 million as of last Sunday. Renowned director Kaige Chen’s “Caught in the Web” debuted at number two at the weekly boxoffice chart in mainland China with a decent $7.14 million over its first three days in release. Martial art flick “Wu Dang” started with a not bad performance, sitting at third place with $3.18 million during its first three-day theatrical run.

It is understood that there will be one scene showing girls fighting in a bathhouse. Informed sources said Chinese actor Jiang Yi-Yan will be showing her bare back in that scene.

Regarding this, Jiang said she completed all the bareback scenes without a body double. She told the reporter that she was willing to sacrifice for the film.

However, China Press reported that the scene will be completely removed in Malaysia due to the strict censorship set by the local censorship board.

Li Yu’s “Double Xposure” opens Sept. 29.

No wonder, the world’s impression of China still focuses on the “cultural revolution” (1966-76), men’s long braids typical of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and foot binding. Those indeed are representative of China’s past, but other parts are often neglected, and the true stories of China and its people have long been misread. The varnished and sometimes demonized images simply hold the real China back from the rest of the world.

Asked for a reaction to Edison Chen’s recent declaration of love for her, Tang Wei was unwilling to give a positive response. She gave thanks to all friends and fans who like her. An staff member came to her aid and dragged her off.

In more Edison weirdness: Perhaps to try and distract attention from Tang Wei fans urging him to let go of their idol, he posted a black and white image of the back of Chow Yun-Fat from “God of Gamblers” with the words, ”I am also in love with him, someone can help me to tell him?” The two posts received over 40,000 comments. Many of Tang’s fans have already responded, asking the notorious lothario to give Tang a break and leave her alone, and suggesting that he has been watching Lust/Caution and wants to make a sequel with himself as the star.
