I cannot believe that someone added my blog to "my favourite". It's very encouraging!! I decide to update more frequently… under the constraint that I have free time. :P
Ok. This time I want to talk about my another favourite thing! FILM.
There is a very famous Hong Kong film star call Stephen Chow. He is famous for his "funny" moive. I watched all his moive.
This link contain almost all of his film and TV series. Very informative.
However, as a Hong Kong people, I understand that he is not a funny person at all. He out of school at 16. He want to join the TV station's drama training course but failed. He started his actor's career as a "K li Fee" ( means very unimportant person in english). I remeber I first saw him on TV was being a "small" ganster, just standing behind other "big brother". Ironically, the main actor in the scene is his best friend, Tony Leung, who is also a very famous actor in Hong Kong. He worked in a children show for about 3 years before he had a chance to being a actor. Then, his career is flying high and become "The King of Comedy (1999)".
Stephen's early performance on stage make me think of another famous star – Charlie Chaplin. ( In fact, stehpen use very traditional way to act in his early moive, e.g., when he is happy, he is jump up a bit and kick his leg. ). Personally, I wonder Charlie is not a "funny" person at all – unsuccessful marriage and pressure from making moive. There is a picture I think reflecting very much his true life and character. This picture is taken on the next of the fire in Charlie's studio, 28 / 9 / 1926.
For those who want to know more about charlie, go to this link.
There are million interesting things about moive. But, talk later.
