Johnnie To Kei Fung two nights ago attended a May French Film Festival premiere in Wanchai. Attending were UN PROPHETE director Jacques Audiard, Hong Kong French consulate general Arnaud Barthelemy and others. To Sir said that said that this was the first time he met Jacques Audiard. He has seen his work before, but they still had no plan to work together since they were both busy. Would he play host to the director? To Sir said that later when they had time they would chat, but because they were both busy, he would leave the tour to the French consulate. Actually this event was more like directors catching up because Ringo Lam Lan Tung, Tsui Hark and others all made the trip back to Hong Kong.
In addition, speaking of the troubled marriage of Nicholas Tse Ting Fung and Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi, To Sir did not understand and asked reporters about it. After reporters explained, To Sir honestly said that he was uncertain. He rarely paid attention to entertainment news. Has he contacted Pak Chi? To Sir seemed somewhat reluctant and said, "No, I don't have any role that's right for her. (What about Ting Fung?) We belong to different companies. I am (Peter) Lam Kin Ngok's (company). (Any comment on their troubled marriage?) It happens all the time in
show business. (Marriage trouble?) It has been around since the war." To Sir also thought the most important to marriage and relationship was a good grasp. Did he prefer to hear good news like Sammi Cheng Sau Man and Andy Hui Chi On's rumored wedding? To Sir cracked up and honestly said that indeed was better, when people asked him about it he would laugh. However earlier he was all frowns. Did he ask Sammi about her wedding date? To Sir said, "I just forgot, but later I will still see her, next time I will remember to ask." Would On Jai have to present tea to him? To Sir said that he did not need to, this era did not require such a ceremony.
