Deanie Ip: "Wong Kar-wai films too long"

4 Feb – Everyone including the fans and actors in the movie industry is well-aware of director Wong Kar-wai's trademark style of spending years to shoot one particular film, and Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress Deanie Ip even remarked that his production time is too long for her to star in his movies anymore, considering her age, according to Asia Fanatic.

Deanie said that she has fallen in love with Wong's work after watching "The Grandmaster" which was in production for 10 years.

"I wasn't a fan of Wong Kar-wai but after this I finally have a Hong Kong director that I really like. And Tony Leung Chiu-Wai is exploding with cool!" she claimed.

When the 65 year-old was asked about the chances of her collaborating with Wong, she replied, "Do I want to work with them? Leave that to fate! I don't want to make a martial art film, watching is enough."

Deanie also said, "At my age I shouldn't follow others. In addition, Wong Kar-wai takes several years to make a movie, so I am afraid that I won't live through the shoot."

While critics and fans noted that Zhang Ziyi's scenes have exceeded Tony's, Deanie has a different opinion, praising the actor for his brilliant performance in the film.

Deanie and Tony were co-stars in the TVB series "Encounter With Fortune" and "The Lunatics".

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
