ChinaDaily: Chinese films stuck in the past

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.

Micro News

Zhou Xun

Stills from a media set visit in Beijing for the latest celebrity micro film, “I Know You”, starring Zhou Xun and Jing Bo-Ran. Produced by Pang Ho-Cheung, Wing Shya directs from a script by Jody Luk (”Love in the Buff”). In the fantasy romance, Zhou Xun plays three roles, as a teacher, a beautician and a doctor, as well as an alien who like to eat Earth’s food. Jing Bo-Ran plays a chef. The film was shown to the media in Beijing. Wing Shya explained that the film explores the love and trust of city people and expresses the yearning for the simple life.

Tang Wei and director Kim Tae-Yong attend the Hong Kong premiere of “Late Autumn”. Hyun Bin was absent due to work commitments. 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.
