We wish happy birthday to our favorite actress ! She celebrates her 34th years.


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.”
