The Juno Mak Chun Lung, Japanese actress Sora Aoi starred film REVENGE A LOVE STORY (FOK SAU JEH JI SEI) competed in the 33rd Moscow International Film Festival. Juno and director Wong Ching Po attended the award activities. After interviews with different media outlets and a major press conference on the first day, on the second day they attended the public screening of REVENGE A LOVE STORY.
Although the film festival has not officially announced the winners, the team in Moscow brought good news as REVENGE A LOVE STORY would receive a media judged prize with a Holland film. The media's high appreciation surprised them and added to their confidence. They would personally accept this award.
Two days ago, the REVENGE A LOVE STORY screening was held. The cinema was sold out. Juno and the director both attended their first overseas screening and gave their first speech. In front of the foreign audience they seemed somewhat nervous. They watched the film with the audience until the end. Aside from close contact with viewers, they were able to experience the response of a different language audience. The audience enthusiastically applauded for eight minutes from Juno's death to the appearance of female lead Sora Aoi. The applause brought tears to Juno's eyes as he bowed to the audience in appreciation.
After the screening, the audience gave the film high praises as they talked toward Juno and the director and compliment them on making a film with an unique subject and sincerity. They not only asked Juno and the director for photos and autographs, but also talked about the film with the assistance of the translator as if they were in a small film discussion. A film professional asked Juno to write a script for him and an U.S. detective film festival invited them to compete.
