‘Grandmaster’ nearly sweeps Hong Kong Film Awards

HONG KONG (AP) — Wong Kar Wai’s much lauded kung fu epic “The Grandmaster” won a near-sweep of the Hong Kong Film Awards.

The story of martial arts legend Ip Man has been praised for raising the martial arts genre to a new level and is one of Wong’s most successful films. It claimed 12 of the 14 awards for which it was nominated, including best film and best director.

Accepting his third best-director win, Wong said he was particularly thrilled that the crew and cast were recognized for their hard work.

“For the last three years, they really gave so much of themselves for the film,” he said, referring to the time the film was in production.

“Unbeatable” star Nick Cheung, who took his scenes as a boxer so seriously he broke his finger during filming, was named best actor. He thanked everyone from his director to the film crew while on stage accepting his win, but forgot two people dear to him.

He remembered them backstage, saying, “Thank you to my daughter who’s brought so much happiness to my life. Thank you to my wife, who’s given me so much bliss in life.”

Best-actress winner Zhang Ziyi said at the after-party she felt some regret that her “Grandmaster” co-star Tony Leung didn’t win.

“I really hoped that Tony could have won the award, but I think it’s fine, because without this recognition, it doesn’t change the fact that he’s an outstanding actor,” she said.

Zhang, who has won nine best-actress honors across Asia for her performance in “The Grandmaster,” said she feels this award marks a new beginning.

“The Hong Kong Film Awards has given me a new starting line, to start from the beginning and keep working hard. Do a good job with every film and each character, and hard work will eventually be paid off,” she said.

Zhang Jin was named best supporting actor for his role in “The Grandmaster,” and Kara Wai Ying Hung was named best supporting actress for “Rigor Mortis.”

“The Grandmaster” also won the top honor at the Asian Film Awards in March and was a best-picture nominee at Asia’s premier film event, the Golden Horse awards in Taiwan, late last year. It had nominations in two technical categories at the Academy Awards.

The film’s 12 wins is a record at the Hong Kong Film Awards, now in its 33rd year. “Cold War” and “Comrades: Almost a Love Story” both won nine previously.

About Face: Wong Kar Wai’s Leslie Trilogy

Time, the predominant subject of Wong’s films, is also an element essential in his process. Wong’s directing is intuitive and spontaneous: responsive to ‘the moment’, he is constantly reworking the script (often daily during shooting) to better capture the lighting, mood or location. The script acts as a departure point for the actors and Wong’s key collaborators, cinematographer Christopher Doyle and production designer and editor William Chang, whose inventiveness and ideas are material to the outcome. Shooting is frequently stalled to permit Wong time to reconfigure, then consequently rushed to meet externally imposed deadlines (the actors’ schedules, film festival premieres, release dates). The final film is constructed in the edit suite, not, as Wong points out, via the usual linear assemblage, but via a process of discounting, of ‘breaking down’. Leslie referred directly to the impact Wong’s process had on his own schedule, a process that kept him from the business of being a star: ‘Somehow I find it very difficult to work with him, especially he’s killing a lot of time for me’. [6] This notion of ‘killing time’ is something that is antithetical to commercial Hong Kong filmmaking practice, renowned for its tight schedules and quick turnarounds. It is also knowingly translated into lassitudinuous characters that Leslie portrays in Wong’s films: the sultry inertia of Yuddy in Days of Being Wild, the melancholic immobility of Oy-yang in Ashes of Time, and the emotional fragility of Ho Po-wing in Happy Together, who is caught in an endless loop of passion, boredom and dejection.

In Wong’s films, Leslie frequently denies the camera his face, teases the edge of frame. Director and actor conspire to seduce: knowing the power of Leslie’s iconic gaze they refuse to give it up to the audience. The opening sequence of Days of Being Wild activates desire in a dance of performance, camera movement and editing. Leslie flirts with the camera first, leading the chase; the camera follows him from behind, he disappears and comes back into view beckoning with his jaunty butt wiggle: keep following me. Performer disappears, and character emerges Leslie (as Yuddy) flirts with Maggie (as Su Lizhen). Only one shot in this sequence reveals his gaze, and we are made conscious of being denied it by the moment when Yuddy’s eyes, directed away from the camera, burn a hole in Su Lizhen. In Happy Together, Leslie’s face appears first reduced in the lo-res passport photo of Ho Po-wing, and then half appears smothered in the pillow during the sex scene with Tony Leung Chiu-wai (Yiu-fai). The wild opening sequence in Ashes of Time contains two sets of matching shots, alternating between extreme close-ups of the left side of Leslie’s face (escaping the frame on the ‘malicious west’/left) and the right side of Tony Leung Ka-fai’s (escaping the frame on the ‘evil east’/right). These opposite yet (almost) equivalent shots render the screen cylindrical: stretching the faces in Buddhist symmetry towards some off-screen space, as if the opposing fragments might join and be whole. While seeming ‘the same’, there is a distinct difference in the framing of Leslie’s and Tony Leung Ka-fai’s faces. The first shot of Leslie reveals barely a quarter of his face, cut to three quarters of Tony’s. In the second set, both shots frame three quarters of Leslie and Tony’s faces. Even here, embedded in an elliptical and frenetic sequence of landscape and swordplay shots, the tease: Leslie’s flirtatious edging into frame.

The consistency of play with Leslie’s face is maintained across all three films. Wong’s use of the extreme close-up often pushes toward an exacting abstraction. In Sam Peckinpah’s Ride the High Country (1962) there is a feral, unmotivated close-up of Warren Oates with a raven perched on his shoulder, both face and bird exceed the frame. This shot is out of nowhere: the film’s narrative does not answer it, Oates’ character is marginal and the camera is never this close to the film’s central characters (played by Randolph Scott and Joel McCrea). The face of Warren Oates is latent, readable. It invites interpretation and reveals nothing: it appears as a portent, but it does not signify. Leslie knows the power of such immobility and silence. In Happy Together, there is a shot that occurs after the lovers have parted. Yiu-fai (Tony Leung Chiu-wai) is working the door at a tango bar. Po-wing (Leslie) returns, hustling. Yiu-fai in slow-burn slo-mo, all torture and loss, bled of colour, watches after Po-wing with a desperate longing while Frank Zappa’s ‘Chunga’s Revenge’ throbs the beat. The camera pulls back, Yiu-fai outside framed in the back window, the camera unexpectedly inside the car with Po-wing. Leslie’s face fills the screen, Jimmy Dean mean and butter-wouldn’t-melt. He lights a cigarette and turns his look to Yiu-fai, suspended, hovering in the darkness behind him. He turns back, pausing in fleeting profile. Desire, longing and regret. Time passes, he turns again to the camera: liquid insouciance. In this liminal moment, Leslie’s expression doesn’t change. He can be read all ways. Leslie and Christopher Doyle’s camera make us see, without actually showing, emotion.

Robert Bresson, in Notes on the Cinematographer, rejects the professional actor in preference for ‘models’ unadulterated by acquired performance technique – ‘Models: all face’. Bresson references an essay by Montaigne in which one man encounters another, poorly dressed, in the snow. When questioned about the paucity of his attire by the first, the second man responds: ‘And have you not, good Sir, your face all bare? Imagine I am all face’.[7] In Bresson’s ascetic aesthetic, ‘all face’ is a state of grace, an expansive naturalness that cannot be learned. This concept is not limited to the face alone: implicit in the reference to Montaigne is a sense of the body as face or the body as the continuation of face. Given that Leslie’s iconicity so often exceeds the characters he plays, it seems reckless to suggest that he embodies a Bressonian naturalness. This assertion is particularly problematic given the extent of his dedication to the craft of performance (attested by Maggie Cheung’s account of Leslie endlessly practising the fall of his footsteps for Days of Being Wild). Yet Wong recognises and uses this contradiction; he directs the shift between actor-Leslie and model-Leslie. The close-up car shot from Happy Together and the opening sequence from Days of Being Wild derive their power from the tug between Leslie’s star charisma and an intrinsic candidness: Leslie in downtime.

[2019.11.06] NICK CHEUNG WEARS A SUIT FROM TEN YEARS AGO AGAIN

Cecilia So reveals that Nick Cheung wore the same suit ten years ago

The Lai Siu Kwan, Sze Pak Lam, Lau Wing Tai directed
and written film GUILT BY DESIGN (CHUI MIN CHOI KUET) two nights ago
held a premiere at the Kowloon Bay International Trade and Exhibition
Center. Producer Derek Yee Tung Sing and actors Nick Cheung Ka Fai,
Eddie Cheung Siu Fai, Kent Cheng Juk Si, Jo Kuk Cho Lam, Cecilia So Lai
Shan and action choreographer Chin Kar Lok attended. So Lai Shan
revealed that Cheung Ka Fai would the suit that he was wearing ten years
ago.

Ka Fai said that he wore the suit ten years ago at a radio award
show as a guest presenter, but it still fit him today without feeling
outdated. He joked that he supported the environment and would not
throw away or give away clothes after just wearing it once. He urged
artists to wear their clothes again and not to throw them away. He also
revealed that Louis Koo Tin Lok loved to collect clothes and needed a lot
of place to store them. He said, “The clothing that I have collected for
the longest was a suit that I wore at the Cannes Film Festival. I
believed I won’t wear it again because that style’s collar was very odd!”
He said that while at TVB he wore a local designer’s fashion and walked
the catwalk as a model. Would he like to play a designer? Ka Fai said,
“If I have the chance I would like to, anything that I haven’t played
before I would be interested in.”

In the film Ka Fai played the hypnotist. He said that he too
wanted to try to be a real hypnotist because it felt very mysterious.
However he believed that there was real hypnosis and fake hypnosis. He
also revealed that normally his daughter constantly “hypnotized” him to
be her slave and to give her a shoulder rub, but other than that she
has not made any special request. Would he be able to hypnotize his
wife Esther Kwan Wing Ho? He said, “If I didn’t hypnotize her, she
wouldn’t be married to me!”

Cecilia So Lai Shan in the film played a paralyzed girl. After
Cheung Ka Fai hypnotized her she talked about what happened. She said
that during the shoot she stared at the plate in the microwave and was
completely focused in being hypnotized. Before the shoot she also
rehearsed with an acting teacher. Ka Fai heard and joked with urgency,
“Don’t! Just you alone? Young girls insist on winging it!”

Playing a cop in the film, Eddie Cheung Siu Fai revealed that
two scenes were more difficult. One was underwater, an action scene in
which he was unconscious and hallucinating. Another was a parking lot
explosion scene that required 360 degree camera shoot coordination. He
said, “Another explosion scene took an entire morning to test. Luckily
everyone was agile and finished it in one take.”

Hong Kong/China, 1994
Hong Kong Release Date: 1994/09/15
Running Time: 1:40

Cast: Leslie Cheung, Tony Leung Kar-Fai, Brigitte Lin, Tony Leung Chiu-Wai,
Carina Lau, Charlie Yeung, Jacky Cheung
Director: Wong Kar-Wai
Screenplay: Wong Kar-Wai based on characters from the novel
“The Eagle-Shooting Heroes” by Jin Yong
Cinematography: Christopher Doyle
Action Director: Sammo Hung

Of all the movies I’ve seen, if I had to pick one as my favorite,
it’d be Ashes of Time. It’s hard for me to explain exactly why,
though.
Despite several spectacular action sequences, stunning
cinematography, and eight of Hong Kong’s best-known and
most charismatic actors, it’s not a very accessible movie.
Lots of people hate it.
The video store clerk where I first rented the
movie felt compelled to warn me that “it’s not an action movie.”

Leslie Cheung as Ouyang Feng

Some things in the movie are easy to understand; others are
completely opaque. At a straightforward level, there’s
the beautiful images of the desert, filmed by Christopher
Doyle. The amazing fight scenes, choreographed by
Sammo Hung, are filmed in stop-motion, so that they appear
as a continuous blur of action.

The next thing that’s striking is the narrator’s overwhelming
sense of desolation and regret, contrasted against the other
characters: insanity, grief, recklessness, self-destruction.

Tony Leung Kar-Fai as Huang Yaoshi

The next question is,
who are all these people? In contrast to the plodding
explanations of a TV
episode, Ashes of Time shows us characters without
telling us who they are until much later. (A character
is typically introduced by showing him battling a horde
of enemies.) And there’s a lot
of characters to keep straight; it’s easy to get confused,
particularly if you’re not familiar with the actors.

Jacky Cheung as Hong Qi

Three of the central characters are taken from “The Eagle-Shooting
Heroes”, a famous martial-arts novel by Jin Yong. In the novel,
which takes place decades after the movie, they’re powerful
lords, the best swordsmen in the martial arts
world; in Ashes of Time,
they’re still young men, out to make names
for themselves. The narrator, Ouyang Feng (played by Leslie
Cheung), will later be known as the Poisonous West, synonymous
with corruption and death. Huang Yaoshi (Tony Leung Kar-Fai),
reckless but an equally
formidable swordsman, will retire to Peach Blossom Island and
be known as the Evil East. Hong Qi (Jacky Cheung) will become
the nine-fingered Northern Beggar, leader of the Beggar Clan,
and will eventually kill Ouyang Feng in battle.

Charlie Yeung

It’s interesting to contrast these three characters. Ouyang
Feng is a sympathetic character, despite his later reputation.
He’s willing to help other people, or to offer them advice,
as long as it doesn’t cost him anything. His flaw is his
cold-bloodedness: he proceeds by
calculation, refusing to put himself at risk unless it’s
profitable. He flatly refuses to help a peasant girl (Charlie
Yeung) avenge her brother’s death, because she’s unable to
pay him. Later, he realizes that he has rejected other
people — in particular, his brother’s wife (an uncredited
Maggie Cheung) — in order to protect himself. Ouyang Feng’s
story is what gives Ashes of Time its sense of tragedy.

Maggie Cheung

By contrast, Huang Yaoshi (Tony Leung Kar-Fai) is careless,
even irresponsible, taking risks with his life on a whim.
He’s willing to abandon a woman who’s fallen in love with him
(Brigitte Lin), or to seduce his best friend’s wife
(Carina Lau). Eventually, he withdraws from the
world, blotting out his memories and retiring to an island.

Brigitte Lin

Hong Qi (Jacky Cheung) is the most optimistic of these
characters. Ouyang Feng describes him as a “simple man”:
he’s willing to put his life at risk because someone needs
his help, not because there’s money in it. Like Ouyang,
he’s motivated by ambition — he wants to make a name for
himself — but he also has a conscience, and in
the end, he becomes a force for good. In “The Eagle-Shooting
Heroes”,
he battles Ouyang Feng several times, and eventually
kills him.

Besides these three, there’s two other characters who can
be contrasted with Ouyang Feng. Brigitte Lin plays a young woman
disguised as a man, Murong Yang. Later, she will become known as
the Defeat-Seeking Loner, a legendary swordsman who will never
be defeated. She takes refuge in insanity after
Huang Yaoshi abandons her.

Carina Lau

Tony Leung Chiu-Wai plays Huang Yaoshi’s former best friend,
a swordsman who is now going blind. Since the blind swordsman’s
wife (Carina Lau) fell in love with Huang, they’re no
longer friends. Unlike Ouyang Feng, the blind swordsman is
consumed with bitterness and destructiveness, rather than
simply detachment.

Understanding the characters and the relationships between
them is remarkably complex, but understanding what’s going on
isn’t particularly easy, either. The plot is episodic and
non-linear. The closest thing that comes to mind in American
movies is Pulp Fiction, with its three interlocking stories.
Even there, though, each of the stories had a clearly defined
arc. Here, the emphasis isn’t on what happens, it’s on the
characters themselves: the focus shifts from Ouyang Feng and
Huang Yaoshi to Murong Yang, then to
the blind swordsman, then Hong Qi, and finally returns to
Huang Yaoshi and Ouyang Feng.

Tony Leung Chiu-Wai

Time jumps both backward and
forward — not carelessly or randomly, but in such a way as
to unfold the story of each character. In many instances,
the full implications of what we see only becomes apparent
later. The first time I saw Ashes of Time,
I immediately rewound it and watched it again. It was the
only way I could make sense of what I had seen the first time.

Overall, I can’t claim to have anything approaching a full grasp
of the movie, because it seems to have so much depth to it.
It uses all sorts of unconventional and experimental techniques,
without being incoherent or confused: I get the sense that
the filmmakers know exactly what they wanted to say and how
they wanted to say it — the carefully framed images, intercut
with one another, the
acting, the cryptic dialog, the ominous soundtrack, all form
a coherent whole — but I don’t know exactly what it means,
and I can’t dissect it and figure out how it works.

Maybe that’s why I’ve watched it so many times.

How to see it

If you want to see Ashes of Time, try the following:

  • your local video store, if it has a large selection of foreign
    films and knowledgeable staff. Wong Kar-Wai’s Chungking
    Express
    , which is much more accessible compared
    to Ashes of Time, should be widely available.
    (Quentin Tarantino released it in the US.)
  • your local Chinese video store. You’ll need to show them
    the Chinese title:
  • If you know what a Video CD is,
    you can mail-order the Video CD from one of the
    places listed in the Video CD FAQ.
    I have a copy of the Video CD; the transfer, by Mei Ah,
    is quite good.
  • You might also keep an eye out for it at film festivals.
    My brother saw it at the Vancouver International Film Festival
    (he hated it!).

There’s two releases on DVD, one by Mei Ah which has been out for
several months, and one by World Video which was just released in
October 1998. The
World Video release
is terrible, according to people on alt.asian-movies. The
Mei Ah
release is basically the same as the laserdisc release; I’ve got a
copy of it.

Update: Mark Morrison says
that Chinatown Video in Australia has just released Ashes of Time in PAL
format. (He wrote the liner notes!)

Nick Cheung / Cheung Ka Fai

Nick Chun was born on December 2, 1967 in Hong Kong.
The family has two older sisters.
In his youth, he graduated from the Police College and the Police Academy and served as an inspector for 5 years, but left when his application for further training and transfer to investigators was refused. Two years after that, he gets a job in a film studio, with which he first moonlights as part of a film crew, and then begins to act in films.
Nick Chun made his small debut as one of Lee’s henchmen in the action movie Thank You Sir! in 1989, then appeared as a police officer in the thriller “Attack News” (1989).In 1990, the actor starred in The Incompatible Couple, where, among other things, he acted as a script consultant for the work of police officers.

However, the next few years did not bring Nick neither fame, nor any special money – in 1990, Danny Lee entrusted him with the main role in the action movie “Against Everything”, which was filmed by Andrew Lau, who was just beginning his directorial career, but The film did not succeed and Chun returned to supporting roles in police action games again. In parallel, he began acting on television – from 1991 to 1995 on ATV, and then switched to TVB.

Nick’s career got somewhat accelerated only in 1998, when Wong Jing entrusted him with a secondary, but rather important (and comic!) Role in Kidal, whose star was Andy Lau. The film raised good money, and Wong Jing realized that he had stumbled upon a gold mine – Stephen Chow in those years gradually slowed down, switching to the “film in a year” mode, and Nick could well occupy an inevitably empty niche. For added confidence, Wong Jing filmed him in “Master of Tricks” (1999) – nominally the main role in it was played by Stephen Chow, but most of the screen time was given to Nick.

The years from 1999 to 2003 become the heyday of Nick as a comedian – critics never tired of smashing films with his participation, but at the box office they collected good money, especially if Nick was given a pair of venerable stars like Andy Lau. They starred together in Prince Charming (1999), Duels (2000) and the first of two Kidals sequels, Kidal in Vegas (1999). But, although fans of Hong Kong cinema now strongly associate Nick with comedies, he does not abandon his attempts to go beyond the role of a silly funny guy – for example, he starred in a biopic about screenwriter Yuen Kai-Chi (“A Chinese Ghost Story”) called “Time of Hope” ( 2002).

In 2004 Nick finds himself another “patron” – he becomes the founder of the Milkyway studio Johnny To, who saw the actor as a charismatic “common hero” or, in other words, an “ordinary hero”. The role of Nick Chun in the action movie Breaking News (2004) became a turning point – in this film Nick played a tough police officer who is by no means a superhero, but more than makes up for all his shortcomings with perseverance and tenacity bordering on stubbornness. In 2005 and 2006, To directed the actor in the Election dilogy, where Nick played the silent hitman, and the action movie Les Miserables, while director Herman Yau entrusted him with the role of an undercover cop in the dynamic action game On the Edge (2006).Nick also decided to “remember his youth” and starred with Wong Jing in the “card” movie “Smart Guys Don’t Die” (2006), but only because it was not a standard comedy, but a cunningly twisted, almost “noir” thriller about crime and punishment …

Nick Chun is one of the most sought-after actors in modern Hong Kong, although his reluctance to be fixed in any one role significantly limits his popularity. In 2008 alone, he released three films – a silly comedy from Wong Jing “My wife is a card sharper” and the action films “In Touch” and “Hunt for the Beast”, for which the actor received many prestigious film awards.

In subsequent years, the actor starred in such popular projects as: the historical political film “Founding the Party” (2011), the detective “The Sixth Commandment” (2011), the action crime drama “White Storm” (2013), the comedy melodrama “The Temporary Family “(2014), the horror film” Guardian of Darkness “(2015), the fantastic crime thriller” Helios “(2015), the crime thriller” Taste of Crime “(2018), the crime thriller” Integrity “(2019).

Personal life
Nick Chun married actress Esther Kwan in 2003 in Australia, they have a daughter Brittany Chun, who was born on January 24, 2006.
