Variety: Nightfall review

Gut-wrenching violence, classical music, daddy issues and Lolita complexes are grist for director Roy Chow Hin Yeung’s grisly mill in “Nightfall,” a Hong Kong thriller with a strong noirish flavor that stops short of lurid, thanks to the seasoned cast’s solid perfs.

FBA: Woo boards BeastTHR

John WOO will direct Day of the Beast, a remake of SUZUKI Seijun’s yakuza classic Youth of the Beast (1963).

The Chinese martial-arts film “Wu Dang” is set to debut at the 65th Cannes International Film Festival

As a part of the “Four plus One” project produced by Pang Ho-Cheung, the movie tells a comedic story, which is set in Beijing, about a man and woman who can’t remember the night after a drinking binge. In that one night, they lose a company car and 300,000 yuan in cash, and then the two trace back their steps to try to figure out what happened.

The film features actors from the mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan, including Francis Ng, Simon Yam, Zhang Zhen (Chang Chen), Song Jia, Chen Chong (Joan Chen) and Janice Man.

The film depicts a series of comical incidents which occur between 3 pairs of lovers on an island named Re Ai Dao, or Hot Love Island. The couples experience a number of misunderstandings and setbacks in pursuit of a happy ending. [Filmed back in 2010, it might be a hint that the film's a stinker.]
