Jaycee Chan : I understand what you mean (smile). In fact, everything was clear during the shooting but Jiang changed all of it during the editing and that became more confused at the end. To be honest, when I saw the movie for the first time I didn’t understand it AT ALL.
In fact, the whole movie is about life. He said so… Well, he didn’t say it for real because he likes to be quiet about what he tried to express. I had to see the movie twice to understand it well.
I embrace the movie as a test. When you are able to smile in front of the two-hour movie then you’ll appreciate life much more when you leave the theatre. And you won’t be scared anymore about death. But if you feel the movie as something too confused and incomprehensible, it is death unfortunately. The way you watch the movie is the way you are able to see life. It is everything but a boring film. One generation passed away and another was born, and the sun also rises.
It is like one of the character’s metaphor when he commits suicide: the day he died, there will be plenty of things that we won’t be able to understand.
In fact, I saw the movie with Eason Chan. At the end of the preview, a producer turned back to him and asked him if he understood a thing, and Eason answered: “There’s no need to understand.” Well, this is what it’s about: the real mystery of life!
