CF: Hong Kong Film Awards, Still Lacking New Blood

“The Hong Kong film industry is completely controlled by commercial interests. The investors are ultimately businessmen. Employing new actors may cost them less money, but the risk is very high, simply because box office revenues cannot be guaranteed. So, a lack of famous stars in a movie will mean fewer people will be willing to invest in it.

According to Hong Kong media reports, actress Cecilia Cheung who divorced her husband, popular star Nicholas Tse, earlier this year will not make an appearance on this year’s film extravaganza in an effort to dodge the media limelight.

The movie is based on the true story of a Hong Kong business mogul in the early 20th century. [Aaron] Kwok portrays the lead character who was born after his mother was raped by a British seaman and was later adopted by a fishing family. Paw [Hee-Ching] plays his foster mother.

The same scenes were censored during the film’s original run in China in 1998, but many viewers first saw the film on pirated copies from the West, and thus are more familiar with the unedited version.CDT

Some even lampooned the state watchdog with a satirical news story, “The State Administration of Radio, Film and Broadcast finally gave an explanation of its decision to remove the nude scene it OK’d 15 years ago: ‘In light of the specialness of 3D movies, we are concerned that viewers may extend their hands for a touch during the scene and hit heads of viewers sitting in their front, which may result in disputes. In consideration for building a society with spiritual civilization, we decide to remove the scene.’

A1: Cannabalism in HK drama - a matter of taste?

A controversial Hong Kong TVB drama series is alienating its core group of mature viewers, butis drawing new and younger fans to the goggle box with its creativity.

When Heaven Burns, a 30-parter psychological drama that explores the consequences of a guilty conscience, was massively panned when it started its run in Hong Kong last month.

“Most of them feel that they are already so tired after a long day at work, it’s a chore to use their brains to digest the content of a drama series.
