    Default Fei hap siu baak lung --The White Dragon (Cecilia Cheung, Francis Ng, Andy On)






    I watched this movie last Saturday night, and I just couldn't quite shake it off my head. Has anyone seen it and liked it too? Cecilia is as pretty as always, and her acting is even more impressive than her looks. She's been in lots of crappy movies these years , so I wasn't expecting this one to be an exception when I watched it. And it turned out to be a pleasant surprise! It's funny and touching, and I have to say: Francis Ng is absolutely fantastic~~!!!! I mean I never understand the appeal of Andy Lau, Leon Lai or Takeshi Kaneshivo or any "good-looking" actor, but Francis----I'd say he's got this charisma from the blind-swordman character he plays, and the acting is just outstanding!!!! My only complaint is that the movie is too short, so I guess I'll just have to watch it over and over again

    I read from somewhere that Francis is also in Infernal affairs 2? If it's true I'll defintely put this movie in my must-see list

    Yes, he was nominated for a best actor award for Infernal 2.

    As for White Dragon, yeah, I watched it two nights ago, pretty funny stuff.

    The Mission (he got a Golden Horse Best Actor Award for this one, upsetting In The Mood For Love's Tony Leung) and Bullets Over Summer

    Both 1999 films. But some of his most acclaimed and loved films.

    Minimal. Watch it for the comedy, not the action scenes.

    Default Summary~~~~

    Cecilia Cheung takes on two roles in this brand new film by Wilson Ip, which also stars Francis Ng, who hasn't starred in a historical film in years. White Dragon is a historical romantic comedy, but with Wilson Ip helming the film there is little chance this film will be conventional in any way! Adding more contemporary elements against a martial arts background, even breaking cultural boundaries by adding a Japanese-style blind samurai into the mix, White Dragon is innovative, fun, and romantic all at once!
    Cecilia Cheung has already starred in a few historical films, and this time she has to use all the tricks that she has as a Best Actress winner to pull off the demands on her part: cross-dressing as well as being a convincing fighter and musician! In preparation for her role, she specifically took music lessons to play traditional Chinese instruments. She plays both Black Phoenix and White Dragon, with the story set in Ming Dynasty. Black Phoenix is famed as a beautiful woman in a prestigious school who lives with her father Black Hawk, and she dreams of marrying a prince. Once she won an award as best musician, and caught the eye of the second prince, and they fall in love at first sight.

    However, she is also the heroine Little White Dragon after receiving all the power from Elder White Dragon, who was severely wounded by blind swordsman (Francis Ng). Little White Dragon continues the works of the Elder, performing heroics and attempts to hunt down the blind swordsman. However, they begin to fall for one another...

    Saying that she plays to roles is wrong. She merely played a character with a secret identity. (you don't say that Tobey Maguire plays two roles, one as Peter Parker, one as Spider-man, right? )
