I certainly look forward to seeing this movie which had its world premiere at the 57th Sydney Film Festival which finishes today. It will be featured next week in the Shanghai Film Festival. I certainly look forward to seeing it - and hope it is released to the movie theatres here in Australia soon.
Australian Guy Pearce teams with Claudie Karvan and the little Chinese girl is played by Zhu Lin. It was filmed in Australia and China - with Portal Pictures and Zhejiang Hengdian Film Productions in association with IFS Capital Limited and Screen NSW.

The Hengdian Film studios are in Zhejiang province - an hour or so drive away from where I lived when I was in China. Friends had the opportunity to go there, but I did not. Wish I had. They have totally recreated the enormous Forbidden Palace there, and I believe it is one of the biggest movie studios in the world.
