The elephant in the room throughout the Beijing event was the Shanghai festival that celebrates its 14th edition in June.

After a few years’ absence of what was once an annual summer tradition, 4 Star owner Frank Lee has once again ventured into the theater’s crawlspace and come up with some forgotten gems of martial arts, action and erotica and cobbled together an Asian Movie Madness series to last through July.

Ung said he does not see Hollywood filmmaking or its tendency toward cliched happy endings as the pinnacle of success, and he admires the creativity of foreign films. He refers to Hong Kong films from the 1980s, which often end tragically and abruptly.

“I thought, ‘Wow, you can really end a film like this?’ You wouldn’t see this anywhere in an American screenwriting textbook,” Ung said. “These guys have guts.”

For instance, the local charitable organization, the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, has pooled its resources to create Merry-go-round, a drama co-directed by indie helmer Mak Yan-yan and Clement Cheng, in celebration of the organization’s 140th anniversary.

In the film, Li portrays a manager at a financial company. When Yee was asked to describe Li in real life, he said Li was strong, but inside she was a tender woman. As soon as the voice faded, a tear came out of Li’s eyes. “It’s very touching that the director understands me,” explained Li.

Triple Tap: Intriguing premise but uneven delivery

Unfortunately, “Triple Tap” could not capitalise on this intriguing premise. Yee made his big reveal somewhere in the middle of the film, completely shutting down the suspense of finding out what actually transpired during the robbery and who was behind it.

Carina Lau skipping Golden Horse awards because of Maggie Cheung?

Hong Kong actress Carina Lau is reportedly skipping this year’s Golden Horse Film Awards in Taiwan because of rumoured love rival Maggie Cheung.

Five-time Golden Horse award winning actress Cheung has agreed to be a presenter at the November 28 award show, her first appearance in nine years. The awards is seen as the Chinese-language “Oscars”.

Shortly after the news made headlines, Lau who was invited to represent husband, actor Tony Leung, at the film festival’s executive committee meeting, declined the invitation, citing work commitments as an excuse.

Leung, 47, is unable to attend the prestigious event as he is busy filming martial arts movie “The Grand Master”, which is scheduled to be released next year, while Lau, 43, is involved in Chinese film “Let The Bullets Fly”.

Lau’s manager has played down the matter, saying, “Things are fine between Carina and Maggie. Carina would very much like to attend the meeting but the crew refuse to let her go. She is still trying to fight for it.”

The long-running feud between love rivals Lau and Cheung, 45, over Leung is no secret and a rendezvous between Leung and Cheung in August this year has reignited rumours of the love triangle.
