Jaycee Chan: Exactly. "PK.COM.CN" was my fourth shooting and it was also another Chinese art-house film.
The movie is in fact the adaptation by director Xiao Jiang ("Electric Shadows") of a novel published in the Internet. I accepted this movie with only one condition, being with my “blood brother” Taiwanese actor Wilson Chen (Chan Pak-Lam), who was also in "Twins Effect 2".
In fact, I discussed a lot with the director and that helped me understand a lot about directing. I learnt a lot with her and with the technical team…
But we also argued some times. She had strong ideas that I didn’t catch. She is a real artist… For example, she had selected a really good actress for the female leading role but she was not very pretty. PK.COM.CN is a youth movie targeting the young people. Yet this actress was about 30 years old and she was supposed to be a twenty years old girl. So, because of this, there was much tension.
I didn’t truly know if the movie was festival material or if it was more like a commercial flick.
But it didn’t stop us to have fun during the shooting. Well, I think it even was the funniest shooting I ever made until now. On the other hand, when I shot "The Drummer", I thought that I was going to die because of the Taiwanese mosquitoes! That led me to believe they loved Hong Kong blood.
