Confession Of Pain ~ Press Release from Hong Kong (25 Oct'06)

Media Asia Films’ HK$80m Christmas outing “Confession of Pain” will receive a pan-Asian release in mid-December. The film launched its promotional tour yesterday with a major press conference in Hangzhou. The two female leads, Shu Qi and Xu Jinglei, were present along with the directing duo Andrew Lau and Alan Mak. The two leading men were unfortunately absent because of schedule conflicts.

Xu is a renowned intellect in China, and she is pleasantly surprised to know that she and Shu Qi have the same birthday. This exhilarates Shu because she has been an avid admirer of Xu, yet they didn't share a single scene together in this film. Xu also likes her co-star and believe they both share the same personality traits.

Although the two male stars were absent, it certainly didn’t stop the press from talking about them. When being asked about the sizzling scene between Takeshi Kaneshiro and her, Shu Qi revealed a grin. “Actually, these scenes were not intimate at all. We just held hands, kissed and slept together. It's nothing special.”

Xu was more elaborate on the impressions with the male counterparts. “Takeshi is really handsome! He looks great in whichever camera angle, and that is truly remarkable. But Tony Leung is magnificent. When he's in front of the camera, his eyes can reveal the story behind his character. He is undoubtedly a gifted actor, and he can stop anyone’s heartbeat with a single glance!"
