Interview conducted by Thomas Podvin with the assistance of David Vivier, on 12 January 2005 in Mr. Wong's Hong Kong flat.

We are very grateful to Mr. Wong for his warm welcome.

Special thanks extended to Ivy Law, Barbara Wong and Bey Logan.

HKCinemagic: You shot the MTV for French singer Mylene Farmer, directed by Tony Ching Siu Tung in 1999.
Arthur Wong: This was very good, very exciting. In this MTV, there are twin sisters [both played by Farmer]. And I was told that for close up, the only angle [she allowed] was from the left (burst into laugher). There were twin sisters, they always look at each other, one of them had to be shot from the right!
So for both of them, we shot the left side, flipped over the negative (laugher) and make sure she is absolutely in the good angle.
HKCinemagic: You shot the MTV in France?
Arthur Wong: In Beijing.
HKCinemagic: You remember the song?

Arthur Wong: Yes. (Laugher) [Ed.: The video clip of Mylene Farmer’s l’Ame Stram-Gram is available on Youtube.

HKCinemagic: [In between DVD change in the DV camera, we ended talking about the Wong Kar-wai’s style.]
Arthur Wong: When Christopher Doyle gave his camera to the assistant, at the moment the framing was right for Wong Kar Waion the monitor. At that moment, he said “hold it there! Take two!” The camera was literally in the air, the cameraman was holding it to the length of his arms, and he didn’t do any framing at all, of course. And Wong said to the actors “do it again, do it again.” Then, “cut! Wow, ok, very good!”
