The 48th Hong Kong International Film Festival opening ceremony yesterday took place at the Hong Kong Cultural Center. The Berlin Film Festival Teddy Award winner ALL SHALL BE WELL (CHUNG GUM YI HAU) also made its Asian premiere as this year's film festival opening film. The performance team Patra Au Ka Man, Li Linlin, Tai Po, Hui So Ying, Leung Chung Hang, Fish Liew Chi Yu, Rachel Leung Yung Ting, Lee Lai Ha and Lai Chai Ming walked the red carpet together, met and shared their film production experience with the audience. In addition the film festival ambassador Karena Lam Ka Yan, filmmaker in focus Fruit Chan Gor and other guests appeared at the opening ceremony.

Liew Chi Yu in ALL SHALL BE WELL played Li Linlin's niece. She praised Li for still being very fit despite being away from film for many years. She also learned to naturally relax from Li. Leung Yung Ting earlier in IN BROAD DAYLIGHT (BAK YUT JI HA) worked with Sister Linlin's husband John Chiang Dai Wai and with Paul Chun Pui on THE LAST DANCE (POR DEI YUK). She joked that she has successfully collected their entire family. In addition each elder is great at acting. For example earlier during a meal scene the elders' performance was very relaxed, something solid flowed from everyday life. Liew Chi Yu and Leung Yung Ting yesterday both brought their boyfriends to watch the premiere. Liew Chi Yu said that she and her boyfriend would mutually support each other's work, and discussed whether they performed well or no. If they ran into any problem they would talk and resolve it.
