    More pictures from the 12th Udine Far East Film festival featuring legendary Hong Kong writer/director Patrick Lung Kong (“Teddy Girls”, “Story of a Discharged Prisoner”, “The Call Girls”, “Hiroshima 28”…)...

    ...and the young talents Derek Kwok & Clement Cheng, writers and directors of my favorite Hong Kong movie of 2010, “Gallants” (starring veterans like Cheng Kwan-tai, Teddy Robin Kwan, Susan Shaw Yin-yin, Michael Chai Wai-man, Bruce Leung, Lo Meng… and actors from the new generation including Wong You-nam, Jia Xiaochen & MC Jin ) which is personally the best kung-fu comedy I’ve seen since “Shaolin Soccer”.


    "Gallants" premiere in Udine / Directors Derek Kwok & Clement Cheng (April 27th, 2010)

    The Udine premiere of “Gallants” (a film produced by Gordon Lam Ka-tung for Focus Films, Andy Lau’s company) was the second screening in the world after the one of the Hong Kong International Film Festival last March. It will be released in the Hong Kong theaters next June.


    Coincidence: Clement Cheng & Derek Kwok started as scriptwriters on Wilson Yip’s “Skyline Cruisers”, where Patrick Lung Kong (who’s currently based in New York) worked on as an actor. Ten years later, they met again at the Far East Fiml Festival, where Patrick Lung Kong enjoyed “Gallants” screening very very much. After the movie, he warmly congratulated the young directors and had with them a great conversation about filmmaking. Magic moment!

    Chapman To was there too. He's presenting "La Comédie Humaine" tomorrow.
