The Kearen Pang Sau Wai directed, Joyce Cheng Yun Yi and Chrissie Chau Sau Na starred city woman film 29+1 and famous Mainland director Feng Xiaogang's I AM NOT MADAME BOVARY have been selected as the Hong Kong Asian Film Festival closing films next month. Yesterday the event began advanced sales for two shows of 29+1 on October 31st at the Broadway Cinematheque and sold out in a hour.
The film was very excited about the news. Joyce said, "Wow! I am very happy! At first when I learned that this film was selected to be the closing film I was already very touched. My previous films were mostly funny or guest star roles. This time I have more screen time and a more serious role in the movie. In addition during the shoot I also had to promote another film GODDESS and my own record. My work stress level was at the point of explosion. Now with such a great response at the film festival, I am truly very happy. I hope everyone would like it." Chrissie also admitted that during the shoot she was approaching the age of 30, she provided a special experience for her and thus thanked all the outside support.
