UNDERCOVER (NGOR FU CHIM LUNG), MY PET IS AN ELEPHANT (NGOR DIK CHUNG MUK SI DAI JEUNG) and HOUSE OF THE RISING SONS (HING DAI BAN). DEALER/HEALER had the strongest cast. Based on the past of the outstanding youth Peter Chan Shun Chi, Best Actor Sean Lau Ching Wan said that he did not have any pressure from playing this character. However working with an elephant on another movie would be a challenge!

Sil-Metropole Organization chief Chei Yiqi yesterday said that the group has always worked hard on producing high quality films and planned to produce over ten movies every year for the Chinese film industry development to be even more colorful. Opening the event was Sean Lau Ching Wan, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Max Zhang Jin and Gordon Lam Ka Tung starred DEALER/HEALDER (DUK GAI), based on the legendary story of a mobster's drug addiction recovery.

Jessica Kan Suk Yi and Kabby Hui Nga Ting yesterday attended the Hong Kong International Film and Television Market to promote their new supernatural film. Jessica said, "The director said my eyes looked evil, which I didn't mind when I got to make a movie. This time I originally had a lot of lines, in the end only one was left. No spoiler so you have to see it for yourselves!"

Hui Nga Ting revealed that in the film she and Bryant Mak Chi Lok had an intimate scene. She said, "I wore a tank top and he was topless. He was very well built but very shy. Big by shy gusy are pretty good!" In charge of the company's Hong Kong business, Ha Yu said, "The company will discover even more new directors. I want to do something for Hong Kong film! (Aren't you busy with both on and off screen work?) I am very busy, but I make the most money from being on screen. For now I won't give up acting!"

Shawn Yue Man Lok, Janice Man Wng Shan, Max Zhang Jin, and Cecilia So Lai Shan yesterday attended the Sun Entertainment Culture's film showcase and promoted their new film THE BRINK (KONG SAU). Playing a villain this time, Lok Jai said that the toughest part was the ending because it took a month to finish. They not only had to visit many locations but also had to shoot underwater. Each actor could only work for a certain period of time, then they had to rest.

Speaking of the underwater fight scene, Lok Jai had stress. "Working on the underwater scene I had to remove my goggles and oxygen mask. Under water it was very dark and I couldn't see anything. Once I almost got into trouble. I forgot to remove the lead, so I couldn't get out of the water no matter how hard I swan. I kept taking in water, luckily I was fine. However I had stress from going into the water. (Did you feel it was dangerous?) Before the shoot I already knew it was dangerous, I was the only one with a diving certification. Zhang Jin and (Gordon) Lam Ka Tung didn't. I already wasn't the one in the most danger." Although each other he stressed about getting into the water, Lok Jai said that he would not stop taking similar roles.

Director Johnnie To Kei Fung yesterday attended the 11th Fresh Wave International Short Film Festival. Speaking of the film TRIVISA (SHU DAI JIU FUNG)'s Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai) and Gordon Lam Ka Tung both being nominated for the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor, he said, "It truly is very hard to choose. They both worked hard, it would be the best for both to win. However, I feel the award doesn't necessarily completely evaluate an actor's good and bad. As long as he is a good actor, he will win an award one day." TRIVISA performed well at many award shows, but To Kei Fung has not considered a sequel yet. He said, "We will see if we will have a chance to make this type of films, but we won't use these three actors. We hope to have some changes. The best would be a different director. I want to lead even more new comers. I myself would make one movie a year at the most, I hope for interest and not for the market."

Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai) and Mainland Kitty Zhang Yuqi, director Andrew Lau Wai Keung, cinematographer Arthur Wong Ngok Tai two nights ago attended the Hong Kong Society of Cinematographers annual dinner. Siu Chai and Zhang Yuqi won the "Most Charming Actor" and the "Most Charming Actress". Siu Chai said that in Taiwan no one has invited him to attend similar events. He felt that the Hong Kong film industry was very centripetal force, very united and had quite an atmosphere.

Siu Chai said that perhaps he played a cold robber he won the charming award. He said that he would continue to work hard on every character.

Yet sometimes during acting he was too in character. Siu Chai stated that it was very hard to leave the character. "After playing the robber, when I got home and looked at the kids my eyes turned vicious. They would be scared. Once I went to dinner with other actors, we all looked around to see if there were any cameras; next door was a gold store and we also came up with the escape route after a robbery; sometimes I even thought that I had a gun in my pocket.
