This film was my diploma for the university of film. Hong Kong cinema was my special interest even before I studied film, so I always knew I would want to work with / in this industry. I was working on this movie for over two years. The first scene was shot on December 5 in 2001 at the "The Duel" press converence in Vienna. The last shot was done exactly two years later on December 5 in 2003 in Hong Kong. For optimum insight I've read every German or English language book about this subject matter available and "tons" of articles on and offline. I've seen nearly every important Hong Kong movie since the mid 80's and I even started taking mandarin lessons. In all the years of study I think, I became one of the leading experts of this genre. Not only in Austria but in Europe. The postproduction was finished in July 2004, including all the editing, grafic arts and German voice overs by renowned austria TV and theater actors. The same month I successfully completed my studies and received my university diploma for this documentary. The documentary shows why the asian cinema is so popular around the globe and why fans, critics, stars and hollywood studios are looking at Hong Kong, where entertainment is best. Covering it's mind blowing action, emotional plots, superb performances, razor sharp editing, brilliant film music, beautiful camerawork and often extravagant sets and costumes. A documentary which is as exciting as the genre itself.

Please respect:

The Hong Kong and Asian movie industry is, like no other movie industry in the world threatened by video/vcd/dvd piracy. High quality movies cost time, love and money. Therefore we would like to remind you to support your stars and the asian entertainment industry. Buy the original and stop piracy! Thanks and enjoy.
