Michael Hui Koon Man yesterday accepted a now interview. He revealed that he was planning a movie, but after 16 years it still has not been made because he was highly demanding and wanted a hit script. He made movies for the Hong Kong audience. He did not want to accommodate the Mainland market to keep the movie from being neither fowl nor fish and unable to please the Hong Kong or the Mainland audience. He compared filmmaking to cooking, at least people had to feel the food taste good before it should be promoted elsewhere. Back then who saw the potential in Taiwan and Indian films, but the fact was that as long as the movies are well made they would be hits. Filmmakers should not just look at the Mainland market but extend their range to the world.
Hui Koon Man also supported watching Hong Kong films. Lately he praised the Hong Kong film VULGARIA (DAI JOOK HEI KET) but thought it was excessive. Stand up comedy also had dirty jokes that definitely would have reaction, but he personally did not like to go overboard.
