HKCinemagic : Your French is very good
Anthony Wong : Ah no, I wanted to learn some, but it is very hard. The pronunciation is very hard.
HKCinemagic : Do you plan to go to France ?
A W : I'd really like to go to France . Beautiful women. Very romantic. I'd really want to go to France to know how to pronounce the wine names, you know.
HKCinemagic : Bordeaux and things like that!
A W : Yeah. And my teacher is in France now. He moved back to France . He went to England to study Clowns. Philippe Gaulier. If you have a chance, say “Hello” to him. He is very funny and his a nice guy. I think he is famous in the field, in the stage field. [http://www.ecolephilippegaulier.com/frames.html]. I studied with him before. Half a year in England . I had a very good time and met people from France , Italy … People come from everywhere.
HKCinemagic : So you speak English, Cantonese, Mandarin...
A W : I'm not very fluent...
HKCinemagic : A bit of French.
A W : I am trying too! Now I am learning Japanese and Shanghainese.
HKCinemagic : Is it to make more movies in the Mainland?
A W : No, well Mandarin when I was young it came naturally. When I was young there were a lot of Mandarin movies from Taiwan . At that time, not many movies from Mainland China . Mandarin songs were very popular too at that time. That's why I sung the songs, watched the movies and it came naturally. When it comes to the industry, we have to go to the Chinese mainland and to Taiwan , that's why we need to practice and practice. And sometimes you got a girlfriend and it's easier to practice. Maybe some day in the future, my French will become good! [says he with a shiny eye contemplating the perspective of a French girlfriend].
I was in France once, in Paris. I studied in England and went to France by train. I stayed over the week end and had a very good time, very good food. French restaurant in HK are very expensive. There are some good restaurants around Central. But it's very expensive. There is one called “Chez Moi”, run by a French guy. Very good food and very good service, I like the way they serve the food. “Voila!” Oh great.
HKCinemagic : We eventually left good friends after a lecture on how to pronounce “Chez Moi” in French.
