This morning, I was in North Point at the Sunbeam Theatre, on the set of
a very special movie named “
Rouges du Bourreau de Jade”a.k.a“Le Notti Rosse Del Boia di Jade”(Literal translation:
It’s the first feature film directed and produced by
Laurent Courtiaud and
Julien Carbon, two French filmmakers
based in Hong Kong since the mid-90’s, who wrote scripts for several Hong Kong
Johnnie To 杜琪峰,
Tsui Hark 徐克 and even
Wong Kar-wai 王家衛.
According to Laurent Courtiaud, “
Nights” will be a kind of “
giallo” with mystery, (sadistic) murders, fetishism and women.
Carrie Ng 吳家麗, one of the
three main actresses (the two others are
Carole Brana) was on the
set today, but only to try some costumes. She also made several interviews and
photo shoots with the local press.
Maria Chen 陳霽平was also on the
set, and didn’t shoot any scene either. In the movie, she’s a bad girl who
speaks Cantonese and French.
The scene which was shot today was a Cantonese Opera performance with a Chinese
French speaking actor named
Wong ......and a female
singer (I don’t know her name yet).
This scene was choreographed apparently by Law Kar-Ying羅家英 (who’ll be
back soon as an actor this year in “
Will go back of the set tomorrow. More news about “
Red Nights” very
