We have some really good news from Cannes Film Festival. Be warned, huge update.

Yesterday, Dangerous Liaisons was screened at Directors Fortnight. Unfortunately Zhang Ziyi wasn’t in Cannes because she’s still filming Wong Kar Wai’s “The Grandmasters”. Cecilia Cheung and director Hur Jin Ho was here to promote the film. The producer of the film reveald that the film showed at cannes was edited in a hurry.

Even if the film is not fully finished, it recieved a standing ovation at the end of the screening. Bellow several comments on the film:

It’s very human, romantic and sincere. I was touched and I even cried when the leading actor was breaking up with the innocent woman

Zhang Ziyi & Cecilia Cheung steal the show in Dangerous Liaisons. Zhang breaks your heart. Cecilia makes you root against her.

@filmfest

Dangerous Liaisons was exquisite, and brought in something new to familiar story. Cecilia Cheung is absolutely brilliant in it #cannes2012

Moreover, The Grandmasters was screened in Cannes yesterday, not the whole film but a footage. Thierry Frémaux said that the footage was edited by Wong Kar-Wai for the festival.

The 5 minutes screened yesterday were focused on Ziyi’s character. Filmed in a snowy place, we can see Ziyi as a child looking at her father while he’s practicing his martial art. At the same time we see Ziyi training herself in the falling snow. The journalists who saw it were very impressed by the beauty of this footage.
A chinese journalist filmed the footage and posted it on Youku but was soon removed. A copy has been saved on Baidu. If you are too curious you can watch it here but be warned the quality is not good.


Ziyi’s new movie, Dangerous Liaisons, will be screened at Directors’ Fortnight on may 24th and on may 25th. A new poster has been released for the occasion. According to some rumors, Jang Dong-gun and Zhang Ziyi won’t be able to come to Cannes this year. Ziyi is still busy filming The Grandmasters. Let’s hope we’ll know more in the coming days…

Also, Ziyi recently signed with the chinese pharmaceutical company Guizhou Braun to promote collagen products in China.
