DESIRABLE ACTOR: LIU YUNLONG
Desirable Actor: Liu Yunlong from GODDESS OF MERCY (2003, Ann Hui, A+20)
GODDESS OF MERCY reminds me of BETRAYED (1988, Costa-Gavras, A+30), because both of them deal with the heroines who fall in love with the wrong guys. I also learned from GODDESS OF MERCY that people in Yunnan celebrate Songkran Festival like in Thailand.
Ann Hui has directed 28 films, but I have only seen four films of hers: NIGHT AND FOG (2009, A+30), GODDESS OF MERCY, A SIMPLE LIFE (2011, A+10), and JULY RHAPSODY (2002, A-).
