3.20.2012 - News [Roast Pork Sliced From A Rusty Cleaver] (飲水思源)

ScreenDaily: Beautiful 2012 review
Four micro-movies directed by Kim Tae-yong, Tsai Ming-Liang, Gu Changwei, Ann Hui

The film wraps with Ann Hui’s My Way - starring Francis Ng and Jade Leung - about a pre-op transsexual man nervously waiting for his operation. It is a stylishly melancholic film, and defined by the moment when he goes to the hospital for the operation, goes to sleep in the male ward (next to a newspaper reading old man) and wakes as a woman in the female ward…and finally indulging in a smile of relief and happiness.

  ScreenDaily: Youku launches year-long Beautiful programme
The short films, or “micro movies” a new term coined in China for short films made for online viewing, will be released exclusively on Youku’s online platform over the course of the next year.

"I am rather disappointed by Vincent Zhao's words," Yen said. "If I had made a mistake, it would have been my insistence in casting him in the movie. I have no energy to entangle myself in this issue. My lawyer has started on the case."
