Maybe the real love story here is the one between a man and his director. Tony Leung Chiu-Wai and Wong Kar-Wai have made seven films together over a period of almost twenty years, and now their seventh film The Grandmaster is battling its way into cinemas. It was a long, arduous shoot, with Leung training for three years before a single frame of footage was even shot. The two men, both acknowledged to be at the very top of their game in their respective careers, talk candidly about their love for kungfu movies, the challenges involved in making a the film, and give us a little insight into a friendship that`s yielded the dreamy, artistic likes of 2046 and In The Mood For Love.

Special effects makeup artists: they’re responsible for transforming handsome leading men into hideous beasts, making it look as if someone’s been scalped without hurting a hair on their head and aging up 20-somethings so they look indistinguishable from actual octogenarians. Often as unsung as they are integral to the production, these artists make movie magic happen.
"I love being a woman, I am a devout artist, that is who I was born to be, and I am starving for a feminine presence, more of a feminine presence in art, not just in film, but also in our directors, in our painters and sculptors, we need that." Zoe Saldana
