FBA: Lau and Ip reunite for Sister Peach

AP: HK star Andy Lau channels China earnings to local films

Lau said he was barely spending any time in Hong Kong these days, instead busy belting out his hits for mainland fans and capitalizing on his stardom among entertainment-hungry Chinese audiences that accounted for a total box office of $1.55 billion last year. Lau has been the front man for most Chinese blockbusters in recent years, most recently a remake of the kung fu classic “Shaolin” and the fantasy-mystery “Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame.”

Ann Hui is one of the local directors who has sort of fallen by the wayside amid the rise of big-budget Chinese productions. She excels in Hong Kong-set family and domestic dramas that win critical acclaim, but struggles to find viewers on the mainland.

Judge: Photocall - 66th Venice Film Festival (Zimbio)
This story happened in 1997 in a small city in northern China. A criminal named Qiu Wu was sentenced to death for stealing two cars. The lead judge on this case, Judge Tian, had just lost his daughter in a tragic traffic accident—she was killed by a stolen car. A change in the law creates an opportunity for Qiu Wu to avoid execution… At the same time, Qiu Wu tries to lighten his sentence by offering to donate one of his kidneys—creating a chance for a rich businessman named Lee to survive a terminal illness. Lee sets to work paying Qiu Wu’s family and greasing the wheels of the system so he can secure the kidney… Lee discovers that the only way to secure the kidney is after Qiu Wu’s execution—an execution that is now being questioned based on the new changes in the law… On the execution ground, a hard decision awaits Judge Tian…(Venice Film Festival summary)
