HKCinemagic : What happened to the Applause pictures company?
Peter Chan : Applause Pictures is still around. We still do the low budget movies, because Applause doesn’t usually afford big budget movies. The Morgan and Chan company is just an entity for collaboration between projects that is between myself and Andre Morgan, which is really between Ruddy Morgan and Applause, basically. Ruddy Morgan would do American movies, Morgan and Chan is the Ruddy Morgan joint venture with Applause. At Applause we do smaller budget or medium budget Asian movies or Chinese movies. And Morgan and Chan will do bigger budgets with Ruddy Morgan. So Applause can be in co-production with other companies with bigger budget movies.
HKCinemagic : Perhaps Love is like a HK film. How do you consider The Warlords?
Peter Chan : Perhaps Love is made a by HK filmmaker, I really cannot say it’s a HK film, because it’s about China. It’s really about mainland China.
HK audience seemed to be a bit intimidated by the film because it’s not about HK. And the actress [Zhou Xun] in not from HK, the actor [Takeshi Kaneshiro] is from Taiwan. And the real HK actor [Jacky Cheung] plays a HK director. This is all a bit confusing. It’s really more like a mainland movie for HK people, because it has to do with the contemporary Chinese world.
For The Warlords, it’s a little bit easier for HK audience because when it’s a period film they don’t get the HK/mainland separation. When it’s a contemporary film, they do take the location very seriously.
