Yesterday, “The Grandmaster” opened the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival where the film received mixed reviews. Wong Kar Wai said in an interview that the international version, shown in Berlin, was easier to understand for international audience and more mature. Chinese medias reported 20 changes, mostly minor including additions and omissions compared to the original version.

Western audience from U.S, Australia, New Zealand the UK will be able to watch the film on screen thanks to The Weinstein Co. who acquired the rights of ‘The Grandmaster’.

Ziyi, Tony Leung, DP Philippe Lesourd and Wong Kar Wai were reunited to promote the film.

During the press conference Ziyi said:

“For me, even though I didn’t know who my character was, I still think I’m the luckiest actress in the world,” – “If Wong Kar Wai asked me again to give him this amount of time, I would do it again. That’s how great he is.”

This event was Ziyi’s first public appearance since the terrible accusations published on chinese medias. Ziyi’s publicist published a statement on tuesday to dismiss these allegations (read here). Yesterday Ziyi explained she will take legal actions against Hong Kong’s Apple Daily tabloid.

“I’d like to thank everyone for their concern. I really want to tell everyone my attitude about this.

“This ‘news’ is a complete lie. Both within the article and between the lines, there were contemptuous lies,”

“I met with my lawyers in Hong Kong and clearly expressed my position.”

“Whatever the cost, I will seek legal recourse and pursue this matter to the very end,”

“I read a lot of comments from people who don’t know the truth and they think this film industry is like that (rife with unsavoury dealings).

“This time, these (irresponsible reports) have not only hurt me, but maligned the film industry. And worse of all, they (some media outlets) made use of such hot topics to fool the public,”
