The cast & crew

According to Monkeypeach: Shooting of the "banquet" has officially begun inside an aircraft hangar north of Beijing city and choreographer Yuen Wo-Ping has worked on a polo scene at another location. Cinematographer Lü Yue (Shanghai Triad, To Live) has join the crew to work cinematographer Zhang Li (Big Shot's Funeral, Red Cherry), who was on board since the principle shooting began. Several days ago, the set suddenly lost power when shooting of the banquet scene was under way. The lighting crew then turned off some lights and by the time the power was restored, lights from the remaining light sources beamed at several silk curtains, which created an unexpected effect. Director Feng Xiaogang immediately called every one back, several hundreds cast and crew members, to re-shoot the whole scene with the newly created effect.

The river Suzhou that flows through Shanghai is a reservoir of filth, chaos and poverty, but also a meeting place for memories and secrets.

Mardar, a motorcycle courier in his mid-twenties, rides all over the city with all kinds of packages for his clients. He knows every inch and is successful thanks to the fact that he never asks questions. One day he is asked by a shady alcohol smuggler to deliver his sixteen-year-old daughter, Moudan, to her aunt. Mardar and Moudan grow fond of each other. But their tender happiness is disrupted when Moudan thinks that Mardar has kidnapped her for a ransom. She is so disappointed in him that she jumps off the bridge into the Suzhou River. Mardar is now suspected of murder. When a couple of years later he comes out of jail, he meets the dancer Meimei, an alter-ego of Moudan, and becomes fascinated by her.

Hollywood HongKong

Year: 2001
Director: Fruit Chan Gor
Cast: Zhou Xun, Glen Chin (Chan Ying-Ming), Wong Yau-Nam, Ho Sai-Man, Leung Sze-Ping, Tam Kit-Man, Wan Kam-Li, Hu Wei-Men, Koo Jun-La, Fong Wai-Hung, Ma Ma



An initially romantic, later absurd, and eventually moving tale from the Hong Kong slums. Three men fall for the charms of a pretty girl from a neighbouring luxury apartment building. Then the misery starts. This film is the second part of a three part series by Chan about prostitutes, after the more realistic Durian, Durian (screened last year in Rotterdam).

The film is set in one of Hong Kong's last slum districts. The Chu family, father with two sons, sells pork from a stall in the street. All three Chus are as fat as sumo wrestlers. In the same district lives a punk who overestimates himself, Wong Chikeung (18), with a young whore. Bordering on the slum district is a luxury apartment building: the Hollywood complex. In this building lives a beautiful young woman who calls herself Hunghung, but operates under different aliases. She regularly ventures into the slums to eat pork at the stall of the Chu family. First she seduces the punk, then the eldest son of father Chu and finally father Chu himself. From that moment on, Wong Chikeung and the Chus get threatening letters from a lawyer: if they don't pay large sums of money they will be charged with having sex with an underage girl (namely Hunghung, who now calls herself Tungtung). From this moment on, the director changes his tune. The light romantic tone of the film turns to absurdism and there are soon lumps of human meat on the pork stall. The film only regains its original tone during the moving ending.

Zhimo divorced against the feudal marriage system, but as he returned to woo Huiyin, he heard that she had accepted a marriage arranged by her family. It was a fatal hit for him. Even though Huiyin accepted her marriage, she couldn't forget Zhimo. Their love became the inspiration of Zhimo's poems. While he was suffering, a sociable lady, Xiaoman appeared...
