The warm Hong Kong film “Flowing Water and Falling Flowers” is the film and television song “Queen of Change” Zheng Xiuwen, starring talented actors Lu Junguang and Tan Shanyan. It is the first feature film directed by Hong Kong new director Jia Shengfeng. It was the closing film of the Hong Kong Asian Film Festival last year. After being screened at the Hong Kong Film Festival, the warm plot was deeply rooted in the hearts of the people and it was well received. Because Sammi Cheng liked the script so much, she decided to take the role with zero pay and supported the new director. She also won the Best Actress award at the 29th “Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards” for her moving performance of “Auntie Tianmei”, the mother of the host family. Nominated for the 10th time for Best Actress in the Hong Kong Film Awards, even Andy Lau, who has collaborated with him many times, also publicly shouted that he is “partial” and is a good friend, hoping that Sammi Cheng will win the award, which makes her very happy, and director Jia Shengfeng also revealed When I was writing the script, I felt that the heroine had a strong appearance but a gentle heart, which was very suitable for Sammi Cheng to perform “It must be her!”
Sammi Cheng supports the new director’s zero-pay role in “Flowing Water and Falling Flowers”
The story of the movie “Flowing Water and Falling Flowers” tells the story of a foster family service provider who acts as a substitute for the biological parents. Zheng Xiuwen, who is called “Auntie Tianmei” by the foster children, shows a layered and restrained performance in the film with a clean and beautiful style with no makeup and short hair. , she said: “What is more important to me is the hard work in these years. I hope I can improve my acting and play more different roles. It is very encouraging to me!”
Sammi Cheng revealed that when she received the script, she liked it very much. She felt the story was very moving. She said frankly that she wanted to help the new director, and because she didn’t know the behind-the-scenes, she had no choice but to support him personally. The more the director wants to help, he doesn’t need to pay too much attention to the salary, and he would rather put the money on the production, the whole thing will be more meaningful.” He also said that he has always been grateful for leaving many works in the Hong Kong film industry, and he hopes to give back after getting a lot . Sammi Cheng added that the reason for choosing to take on the role is that the story is plain and there is no deliberately sensational part, but in some scenes it will touch people’s hearts and make me very shocked: “This script is a great opportunity for me to try different role, and the director did not deliberately deify Aunt Tianmei. There is a big contrast between the outside and the inside of the role. At the beginning, she did not do it with an angelic heart, but when she looked back, she realized that what she did originally, or these children What was left to her was such a valuable and touching love.”
Director Jia Shengfeng revealed that when writing the script, the male and female protagonists have been finalized. Although she has never met Zheng Xiuwen before, she feels that she is the most suitable candidate: “She looks so strong, but she has a gentle side inside. This contrast is Aunt Tianmei. I think only Zheng Xiuwen is the most suitable for the elements that my aunt needs!” He also revealed that as a new director’s first feature film, the most important thing is the choice of subject matter, “Everyone has family and affection. I have the same identity as everyone else. , I am both a child and a parent, so I put the subject matter on the topic that I am also the most familiar to everyone.” And I want to further explore the relationship between “family affection” and “blood relationship”, so I have the movie “Flowing Water and Falling Flowers”: “I want to tell the story of a family of three with a foster family. The focus is not on the concept of a foster family and the current social situation, but to express how the couple feels indifferent to their lost son through the children who keep coming and going around them. Missing, life continues in another way.”
