The Wilson Yip Wai Shun and Paco Wong produced, Soi Cheang Pou Soi directed, Gordon Lam Ka Tung, Cya Liu, Mason Lee and Hiroyuki Ikenuchi starred film LIMBO (JI CHI) earlier completed its special screening at the 71st Berlin Film Festival. Under the pandemic director Cheang Pou Soi and the cast were unable to fly to Berlin to experience the atmosphere, but film critics and film festival representatives from Toronto, Busan, Rotterdam, Locarno and other places registered online to watch LIMBO online on March 3rd. After the special screening, they could not wait to share their reviews and described director Cheang Pou Soi's return to his DOG BITE DOG shape and his expertise of violent genre film.
Hearing LIMBO's raves overseas, director Cheang Pou Soi was very excited and did not thank film critics everywhere but also the cast. "Making LIMBO was tough, not only because the production environment was wet and dirty, actors' emotions were very suppressed everyday -- Lam Ka Tung and Cya Liu in particular. Thus I am very happy to be able to receive the overseas film critics' recognition. I hope even more for LIMBO to be able to meet the Hong Kong film critics and viewers soon."
