Aaron Kwok Fu Sing with the film PORT OF CALL (DAP HUET CHUM MUI) received the New York Asian Film Festival "Star Asia" award and Berlin Chinese Film Festival's Best Actor award. Yesterday he again won the 7th Youth Film Handbook Chinese Film Award's Best Actor award in Beijing.
Sing Sing competed against Feng Xiaogang, Deng Chao and Lee Hong-Chi, all three gave outstanding performances but the jury pointed out that Sing Sing played the cop during his investigation with an incredible persistence and unprecedented details. His sense of pace for the character and performance method also greatly improved.
After winning the award, Sing Sing said, "I am very happy, any award to me is an encouragement! The event this time reviewed different Chinese, Hong Kong and Taiwan films. PORT OF CALL is a pure Hong Kong film and has not been released in the Mainland yet, but it still received high praises from everyone. To the entire team it is very encouraging! Having the chance to work on an excellent film is the most important to me as an actor, this is already the greatest reward for me."
Aside from Sing Sing, PORT's Jessie Li (Chun Xia) also received New Actor award. Chun Xia said that she would cherish all the encouragement. PORT also became one of the Top Ten films. Liu Xiaoqing received the Outstanding Achievement Award.
