Peter Chan's "Perhaps Love" to delight Venice film fest

BEIJING, July 27 -- The Chinese film “Perhaps Love” will bring a moving end to the coming Venice Film Festival that will kick off Aug. 31, after Hong Kong director Peter Chan received an invitation from the fetsival’s organizers to show his work as the closing film.

The decision was made by Marco Mueller, the new festival chairman, despite having only seen the first version of “Perhaps Love,” which has not yet undergone editing. Having watched the crude production for 40 minutes in Beijing, Mueller suggested the work be the closing film at the festival, and that there should be a grand party for the film. Asked to explain his preference for “Perhaps Love,” Mueller put it down to the movie’s unique musical score. A piece of love-themed musical cinema, “Perhaps Love” captivates audiences with both its moving story line and operatic singing by leading actor, Hong Kong pop singer Jacky Cheung.

Director Chan disclosed that the film was now in editing, and he was not sure whether it could be finished before the Venice Film Festival.
