Prominent Chinese filmmaker Lou Ye brought a cast of blind and sighted actors to the Berlin International Film Festival on Monday with "Blind Massage," an adaptation of a popular novel that's set largely in a massage center run by the blind. It's the first of three Chinese movies competing at the festival this year.
Chinese melodrama "Mystery" and veteran Filipino performers Nora Aunor and Eddie Garcia were honored with the top prizes at the Asian Film Awards.
A dark melodrama by an oft-censored Chinese director heads entries in the best film category at Taiwan's Golden Horse Film festival, catapulting mainland cinema to center stage at the event considered the Chinese-language Oscars.
Lou said backstage Monday night that the award was an encouragement to the whole team who worked on the film, including photographers and art directors.
The film directed by the often-censored Lou Ye tells the story of a middle-age woman who plans to take revenge on her husband after discovering his infidelity.
