The biographical film ANITA (MUI YIM FONG) remembered the late music diva Anita Mui Yim Fong will open on November 12th. In the film Louise Wong Dan Nei played Mui Yim Fong, Terrance Lau Chun Him and Fish Liew Chi Yu played Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing and Anna Mui Oi Fong. The film company yesterday released a production special, explaining how behind the scene workers put all their thoughts into bringing 1960s and 1970s structures like the Lai Chi Kok Amusement Park, Tsim Sha Tsui East harbor, the Lee Theater, Millie's Department Store back to the audience.

Director and screenwriter Longman Leung said that this biographical film had enormous expenses, fortunately he had the support of his boss. He said that the film was handled in a narrative method, in the process he had no way to study whether each street sign would be historically accurate, but he would bring back the most key signs and would try to be exact with the rest. He hoped to bring the feeling of that era back. Longman Leung also mentioned that for the TST East harbor scene, only the New World building did not need post production handling. He admitted that he thought about giving up for a moment. "It's so expensive, I might as well not shoot it. However everyone pleaded with me; don't give up; even for the most complicated part of the computer generated special effects, they said, 'We get the most feel from them, don't give up the scenery, we want to make them!' I also thank everyone for encouraging me at my weakest." He said that Hong Kong was a rapidly changing city. For viewers who never experienced it, if they were able to experience the Hong Kong of yesteryears, they might be surprised that Hong Kong actually looked like that back then. he felt this was one of the responsibilities of a filmmaker.

The Patrick Kong (Yip Lim Sum) directed, Carlos Chan Ka Lok, Tsang Lok Tung, Macy Ma Sihui, Lai Chun, Chung Ching and others starred Emperor Motion Picture FUN SAU JUEN GA (BREAK UP EXPERT) yesterday held a production wrap ceremony. Emperor Group chief Albert Yeung Sau Sing also made an appearance in support, as everyone popped bottles of champagne to toast to box office success. In her first lead role Tsang Lok Tung played the new generation "Ah Bo". Lead actor Chan Ka Lok admitted that he too wanted to play a "male Ah Bo", offered his services to the director but was mercilessly rejected. Director Yip stated that "Ah Bo" could only be a girl.

Tsang Lok Tung played her first female lead and became the new generation "Ah Bo" in Yip Lim Sum's films, a break up expert. She said that she was very grateful for her first lead role, very honored to be able to work elder Chan Ka Lok. When she started in the business she wanted to ask him to be in her music video, but due to weather it did not happen. This time in the film they would have a few intimate scenes. Ka Lok joked, "It is very hard to work on Director Yip's movies without intimate scene, as for love scenes I would leave to Bob (Lam Sing Bun) and Master Seven."

Was Tsang Lok Tung worried about comparisons of her performance of the classic character "Ah Bo"? She said, "Earlier I watched these classic films, but before the production started I didn't deliberately study them. I only followed the director's intentions. This time 'Ah Bo' had ample background story, the character would suffer retribution." Ka Lok joked that he once recommended himself to play the "male Ah Bo" to the director, who strongly turned him down because "Ah Bo" could only be a girl and not a guy. He would play a scheming and plotting character. The result would be unexpected, with the feeling of "I never would have guessed".

Newcomer Ma Sihui appeared in a provocative look. In the film her character would choose money over those closest to her. She said that it was very different form her real personality. This was her second film but her first with a Cantonese performance. She said, "My family's hometown is Shunde, normally we would communicate with Putonghua. This time I am the most worried about speaking Cantonese with an accent. I am working hard on improving that already."

In the film she had to slap Chan Ka Lok. She said that during the shoot she was very nervous. "We had bad takes, I slapped him five times. His face was all red. He then said it didn't matter and told me to slap him hard, otherwise if she missed he would have to suffer even more slaps."

Chrissie Chau Sau Na early in the year finished her new film MADALENA, which became the Hong Kong Asian Film Festival opening film. Yesterday at an event, she said that she never thought to get good news right after just finishing the film. She remembered that this film officially began production on January 1st this year. Because on December 31st she just completed her quarantine and was able to have the New Year's Eve dinner with the team. Sister Na also pointed out that making this film was both painful and joyful. Because in the past when she and co-star Louis Cheung Kai Chung worked together, he was almost in a comedic role. This time they however played a love story, from meeting, trusting to loving the period was very concentrated. Although the production took a month, it felt like dating for a very long time. When they parted the feeling was very painful.

Would she and Cheung Kai Chung have any intimate scene? Sister Na said of course. She even said, "When we made the intimate scenes it probably was the most comfortable and the warmest." She explained that because the production began in winter, at the time she had to wear tank top and shorts or high cut qipao. The intimate scene shoot however took place inside a vehicle and they were able to work with heat. She said, "Thus working on the intimate scene with him was the happiest, if nothing special was happening we didn't want to leave the car."

Also on hand was the group Super Girls member Heidi. She said that she has not attended any public event in over half a year. Earlier she was busy with the film GA MO NUI TUEN (COUNTERFEIT GIRL GROUP) with Anson Lo. They also sang the theme song. Did Anson Lo meet the criteria of what she was looking for in a mate? Currently single, she said, "He is very charm(ing), I like good dancers, but I don't want to say too much. He has so many fans."

The Emperor Motion Picture RAGING FIRE (NO FOR) has been a critical and commercial hit in Hong Kong and the Mainland. Its Hong Kong box office has passed HK$ 26 million; in the Mainland it broke past 1.32 billion yuan RMB to become the highest grossing Hong Kong film in the Mainland Chinese film history. Currently in Beijing, Ting Fung was rather pleased about RAGING FIRE becoming the national Hong Kong films box office. Ting Fung happily said, "I think, because no action film that carries a heavy Hong Kong flavor and lands every punch! I initially started making movies also because I really liked to watch Hong Kong action films. Once upon a time, Hong Kong film was able to go all around the world because the word 'action'; in the past ten years the definition of 'action film' seemed to be science, comic book and animation style movies that were full of computer generated effects. Viewers have not watched two people fighting one on one in a very long times, which made RAGING FIRE widely popular."

In the film, Ting Fung played Yau Kong Ngo. His superb acting won good reviews all around. Has he considered making a prequel for the RAGING FIRE series to continue on? Ting Fung said, "We have a lot of ideas, but how should I put it......director Chan Muk Sing is no longer here. When I made RAGING FIRE, I told myself I hope I would be able to keep going with this director, to make even more Hong Kong action films. However now that he is gone, I actually am caught a little off guard. Because we have accumulated too much experience, in particular action films, I like to challenge more dangerous scenes. Not with every director would I be able to click right now, trust to take risks with some dangerous scenes......I absolutely have the heart to keep this RAGING FIRE series going. As for who I will keep going with, and how to keep going, for now I am a little lost!"

While promoting RAGING FIRE, Ting Fung personally visited cinemas, came in close contact with viewers and left a very memorable experience. "Viewers now are very amazing, maybe they have absorbed too many film and video channel footage, each viewer became a professional film critic. Even with story, lines, photography, lighting that we have not considered, they would bring up them in particular. I was surprised that actually viewers could watch with so much attention to details!" Ting Fung has said that he hoped to keep Hong Kong action film going. Aside from being an actor, would he like to join the director or action direction ranks? "Director wise, now it still isn't the time. Aside from being an actor, perhaps when I am a little older! I have always worked on action shots, and i would add a lot of my opinions. Even with RAGING FIRE this time. If you really put on the title of 'action director, I would need to properly communicate with the director. I wouldn't eliminate this possibility."

Emperor Motion Pictures over the years has made many sincere work of quality. This time RAGING FIRE even became the top grossing Hong Kong film nationally. Emperor Group chief Albert Yeung Sau Sing and Emperor Motion Picture vice chir Alex Yeung Ching lung spoke to the press yesterday. About RAGING's good performance, Yeung Sau Sing said, "RAGING FIRE since its release has been a critical and commercial hit in both the Mainland and Hong Kong. This record breaking performance is something to be proud of and very encouraging, it also proved that Chan Muk Sing truly was a master class Hong Kong action director."

Emperor Motion Pictures invested in at least 6 of Chan Muk Sing's movies. Speaking of meeting and the opportunity to work together, Yeung Sau Sing said, "Around 20 years ago, through Jackie Chan's introduction I met director Chan Muk sing. Director Chan was among the directors I know the most cultured, the most polite gentleman of righteousness. He was full of passion for work, the movies that he made had both decent box office and word of mouth performance. He was one of the directors that we at Emperor Motion Pictures worked with the most."

Tse Ting Fung pointed out that he waited very long for an outstanding script like RAGING FIRE, to be able to continue the spirit of Hong Kong action film. At the market such large scale Hong Kong action films were dwindling, because of the numerous risks involved. Why was he willing to invest in the first place? Alex said, "Hong Kong action film played an important role in the world market, but to make an outstanding Hong Kong action film that was truly rich in Hong Kong flavor, the financial and production considerations were easy at all. In addition it had to have a good director and a good script. Everyone has witnessed Director Chan Muk Sing's talent, he and Tse Ting Fung worked together on NEW POLICE STORY, GEN-X COPS and other movies. The director and the actor cultivated a deep bond. As an investor, I am fully confident in this team -- which very naturally led to birth to RAGING FIRE.'

RAGING FIRE's actors performed outstandingly. Actress Jeana Ho Pui Yu showed no fear in the face of many hunks. Under action director Yen Chi Tan's guidance she even performed the "monkey steals peach" move and stopped all the tough guys dead on their tracks!

About this "monkey steals peach" scene, Jeana joked, "In this scene we were checking IDs at a bar and ran into an uncooperative Wise Guy. Director Chan Muk Sing and Brother Chi Tan hoped to show my brave side and conceived many stunts. From them they chose the 'dragon claw'! After 'stealing the peach' I then kicked the opponent away!" She avoided any awkwardness out of professionalism and practiced the 'dragon claw' hard on the set. She talked from her experience, "Actually 'stealing peach' isn't easy. I had to show that my hand was very strong but I also had to kick him, the higher the better. Luckily that stuntman was well trained and everyone coordinated very well. The shoot was completed very smoothly."

Playing a couple with Best Actress Lam Ka Yun for the first time, Kaiser Chuang said, "The subject of family has no geographical differentiation. After getting such good news, I really am especially happy for the director. Congratulations to the director and the team. I also look forward to this as a good beginning, for our film to be able to continue this good luck and for brilliant success at the box office."

Based on the story of the Hong Kong music superstar Anita Mui Yim Fong, the film ANITA (MUI YIM FONG) will open soon. Edko film company and Fwd House 181 organized the "We Miss You So, Anita" exhibit. Yesterday the actors who played sisters Mui Yim Fong and Anna Mui On Fong, Louise Wong Dan Nei and Fish Liew Chi Yu, were invited to participate in the launch ceremony.

Mui Yim Fong's ever changing image and spirit have transcended through the generations and remained influential today. Many of Sister Mui's classic looks appeared again in ANITA. All of the costumes were inspired by the original designs and made anew. This time three were on display. They represented three important moments in Mui Yim Fong's performing art career, including the "Golden Armor" she wore to perform Paula Tsui Siu Fung's hit SEASON OF THE WIND at the 1982 1st New Talent singing contest; the qipao costume from the film ROUGE that enabled her to bring life to her character and won her three Best Actress awards; and the wedding gown she wore for her final song at her final concert.

Wong Dan Nei in order to play Sister Mui well before the shoot did a lot of research with the team. She kept watching Sister Mui's performance on television, film and listening to Sister Mui's music. She even spent half a year on singing and dancing lessons. "Everyday I spent at least 6 hours in class. Sometimes when I thought I didn't dance well enough, i would add two more hours of dance class. (What do you admire the most about Sister Mui?) Her personality, Sister Mui was a heroine among women, very loyal. When she wanted to something well, she would persist and give her all to make it her best. Later she also gave back to the community and did a lot of charity work. Those were all expression of love for the community and people around her, which were well worth for the younger generation to learn from.'

Stanley Kwan Kam Peng praised her performance as convincing. Wong Dan Nei said that she would remain humble, listen to advice and work hard. She was very grateful that her colleagues and elders in the film treated her very well. She and Liew Chi Yu also achieved real emotions from the performance. For many crying scenes they could not help but shed tears. Outside the film they also became good friends. Has her husband Sheldon Lo (Law Hau Yung) seen the film yet? Wong Dan Nei said, "Of course not, even I haven't seen it yet. At the premiere he would be able to see it."

Liew Chi Yu said that Anna Mui Oi Fong left less research material in comparison, which instead gave her more room to perform. She said that in real life she also had many great sisters, so she was able to project her personal experience and emotions in her role.

On the star message board, actors who participated in ANITA, friends who have worked with Sister Mui, performing art celebrities she influenced, like Sister Do (Carol Cheng Yui Ling), director Stanley Kwan Kam Peng, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Ivana Wong Yuen Chi and others all took this opportunity to share what they would like to say to Anita.

Ray Lui Leung Wai who has not appeared in Hong Kong in a long while. In order to support the new Cantonese opera LOVE IN WAR, he deliberately delayed going to work in the Mainland for a day. After the event ended he immediately returned to Shenzhen for a 21 day life in isolation.

After returning for a month, yesterday he headed back to the Mainland for work. However this time his wife refused to go with him again. His son would also need to stay in Hong Kong until October before getting to study in England. Ah Lui said, "Originally I took two more movie roles. Because my wife was reluctant to return to the Mainland with me, I wasn't at ease with leaving her in Hong Kong alone. In the end I turned down the role. This time I hoped to be able to complete the work, so I would be able to return to Hong Kong for Christmas with my wife. I have also planned to spend Christmas in Hong Kong with Donnie Yen Chi Tan, or perhaps we would spend the New Year together in Sanya."

Ah Lui revealed that this time he would return to make three movies, which would shoot in Shenzhen and Hengdian. He joked that he had no idea whether he would make it back home in time for Christmas. Has he planned to reduce work and enjoy life? He said, "The old lady said that the same thing, but this return to rest for a month was more than enough. I have an addiction to work. I hope to keep working on movies while I am young, still have creative abilities, and make action films." Speaking of his film RAGING FIRE (NO FOR) making over 1.3 billion yuan RMB in the Mainland, he felt that the film would have a chance to reach 1.4 billion. Executive producer Dr. Albert Yeung Sau Sing was very happy and even looked forward to catching up with Chi Tan and Ting Fung to celebrate."

[ THE FILM CATALOGUE ]
    This film is based on the story of So Wa Wai, the medal-winning Paralympic athlete. It teaches audiences that even people who "lose on the starting line" can achieve victory as long as they persist.

    Soon after birth, Wai was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, which made him hard of hearing and even unable to walk normally. But under a strict training regimen from his mother, Wai eventually learned how to walk and was even invited into the Hong Kong Disabled Track and Field Team. Wai has participated in multiple Paralympic Games and won many gold medals. To this day, he is still the record holder for men's 100-meter and 200-meter at the Paralympics. For his achievements, he has earned the nickname "Wizard Boy".

    Wai wanted to be a full-time athlete, but due to his father's work injury, he chooses to become a courier instead to support his family. He tries to balance between work and training, but his mother begins to arrange ad appearances and paid appearances on his behalf. Soon, he falls out with Fong, his coach, for neglecting his training, and he begins to fight back against his mother's control. At the 2008 Paralympic Games, Wai finds himself under unprecedented pressure from the match and his fallout with his mother.

    Fortunately, Wai repaired his relationship with his mother, and he received encouragement from his father and fellow competitors before the match. In the end, he not only wins the race, but also sets a new world record for the men's 200-meter sprint. As he stands on the podium with pop hit "Boundless Sky" playing in the background, he finds himself filled with pride as all 90,000 people inside the Bird's Nest sing along with the song.

    But Wai actually has a more important motivation for winning the gold medal: Wai wants to share the gold medal with his mother, who didn't have a piece of gold when she got married. Now, she can finally proudly wear the gold that she's waited her entire adult life for.
