Swords aren't the only things sent sailing through the air in "The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate."
Winners at the 30th Hong Kong Film Awards, announced late Sunday:
Hong Kong's annual film awards on Sunday honored a sentimental favorite with its top prize _ a quirky, low-budget action comedy about a kung fu master who briefly wakes up from a 30-year-old coma to train two aging students and two newcomers.
Jet Li has been cast in Hong Kong director Tsui Hark's new 3-D kung fu epic, "Flying Swords of Dragon Gate."
Hong Kong's action film master Tsui Hark returns to the big screen with "Detective Dee and the Mystery of Phantom Flame", a new cloak-and-dagger martial arts blockbuster set in the Tang dynasty.
"I have this reputation for working both cast members and crew members very hard," Tsui said, "I wanted them to win more than me.
"We tried to create the most fascinating Detective Dee so that we could satisfy the high expectations of the public," Hark said Sunday, before the film's premiere at the Venice Film Festival in competition for the Golden Lion.
