ON THE SET OF A HONG KONG/FRENCH FETISH MYSTERY THRILLER (WITH SOME CANTONESE OPERA IN IT!)

This morning, I was in North Point at the Sunbeam Theatre, on the set of a very special movie named “ Les Nuits 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 directors including Johnnie To 杜琪峰, Tsui Hark 徐克 and even Wong Kar-wai 王家衛.

 

According to Laurent Courtiaud, “ Red Nights” will be a kind of “ Hong Kong giallo” with mystery, (sadistic) murders, fetishism and women.

 

Carrie Ng 吳家麗, one of the three main actresses (the two others are Frédérique Bel and 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 Stephane Wong ......and a female Cantonese Opera 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 “ Kungfu Cyborg機器俠”).

Will go back of the set tomorrow. More news about “ Red Nights” very soon…

So Carrie Ng's finally back! I've been wondering what the heck has happened to her in recent years.
