Sammi Cheng Sau Man two nights ago headed to Cannes with Johnnie To Kei Fung and arrived yesterday. Sammi was shocked to learn about all the recent crimes, but was not too worried because many company co-workers went along and would take the full safety precautions. She hoped that everyone would be safe.
Due to seating issue, Sammi had to transfer from London while To Kei Fung flew to Germany for his. She arrived at the Hong Kong airport around 10:45PM without make up, a dozen or so fans came to see her off. Speaking of Carina Lau Ka Ling being there, she said, "Really? I don't know but I too want to see her. I wish Ka Ling luck. (Did you know that she sang the theme song?) I know, she sang very well." As for Tony Leung Chiu Wai cheering Ka Ling on in Cannes, she was asked why her boyfriend Andy Hui Chi On did not tag along? Sammi laughed but did not answer. She revealed that she will stay for two and a half days but probably will not have time to look around.
To Kei Fung said that BLIND DETECTIVE (MAN TAM) will not be in competition so he was more relaxed on this trip. He will stay for 3 days, catch up and dine with friends. Some said that the midnight screenings often would allow viewers to scream. To Kei Fung said that foreign filmmakers were very thoughtful so the film festival had no time difference. However he admitted that movies that were screened at midnight usually would have pleasant surprises. He said, "This is a very (Andy) Lau Tak Wa and Cheng Sau Man movie, having a reaction of course would be good."
