"Confession of Pain" Takes on "Golden Flower" in December

The "Confession of Pain" release in December will put itself at loggerheads with “Curse of the Golden Flower”, but Director Andrew Lau remains highly optimistic.

“The market is already saturated with martial arts epics by the same creative talents. They may score at the box office, but they are mostly panned by the critics. ‘Golden Flower’ is riding on an unprecedented momentum, and most filmmakers are more than happy to avoid going against it. But we’re undaunted because we believe the audience needs alternatives. Our cast is as stellar as theirs, and our film is of a different genre. It’s costume against contemporary, so every audience has a choice.”

“Confession of Pain” remained under the media radar during production, a stark contrast to other event titles such as “The Banquet” and “Golden Flower”. Yet it attests to Andrew Lau’s modus operandi – “results speak louder than words”.

Director Andrew Lau is confident that this film will overshadow their phenomenal “Infernal Affairs”. It features the hottest screen idols in Asia, including Tony Leung Chiu-wai, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Shu Qi and Xu Jinglei.

Opening on 14 December 2006
