Summer in Beijing, the poster

Reading the news that Cahiers du Cinéma has been bought by Phaidon Press, I realised that although I don’t speak Frence, I do have a copy of this magazine. It must be sometime in 1999, I was told by a friend I knew through Sina’s movie forum that Cahiers du Cinéma had published a [...]

I went to Alice Lee’s play Dragon Lady: Being Anna May Wong at Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The play, written and performed by Alice Lee herself, tells the story of Anna May Wong, the first female Chinese star in Hollywood. The play made me think of Stanley Kwan’s Centre Stage (1991). It’s striking that after 80 years, [...]

Price of perfection

I wrote this on WaterInk, but guess some of the dianying.com visitors may be interested in this as well.
The Olympics has truly become showbiz when the headline is an adoring young girl lip-synced a song by another young girl at the opening ceremony. In the director’s mind, the girl with the best voice has to [...]

I want to praise Edinburgh’s Cinema China 07’s organisers to choose Centre Stage (a.k.a. The Actress) as the opening film. Not only this gives them a good reason to invite Maggie Cheung, of whom I am a fan, to come to the festival, but also this is a fitting opening for a festival that celebrates [...]

Spring in a (not so) Small Town

I’m very proud of the fact that I had watched Fei Mu’s 1948 masterpiece Spring in a Small Town (小城之春) in cinema. I can’t help keeping telling my friends at every opportunity that how I watched it with excitement, how I love this film and how I fell for the leading actress instantly. My friends [...]

Two Chinese films have entered official competition of 57th Berlin Film Festival which will be held the second week of Febuary 2007.
Tuya’s Marriage (图雅的婚事 tu2 ya3 de hun1 shi4), directed by Wang Quanan (王全安), is about a woman named Tuya in the northern rural China tries to find a new husband who can allow her to [...]

Director Tsai Ming-Liang’s new film I Don’t Want to Sleep Alone is about to release in Taiwan. However Taiwan’s Government Information Office (GIO) censored the poster as well as classifed the movie as Restricted (only 18 and over are permitted to watch the movie), which caused objection from the director and supporters.
GIO’s ruling means the [...]

Who’s Zhang Yu?

There is a sudden surge of interest in the actress Zhang Yu lately. Although actress Zhang Yu (张瑜) was famous in the 80’s of China and no doubt a screen lover of many Chinese young men of the time, who subsequently came back to the screen after marriage, she’s not the person the search is [...]
