Ti Lung (TL) mentioned that he was
in Singapore two years ago to make the movie, and hoped
that audiences will like One Last Dance.
Francis Ng (FN) paid tribute to Raintree
Pictures, because should this movie first be mooted
in Hong Kong, there wouldn't be any interest from investors,
unlike in Singapore (with Raintree).
Q: Was it tough
making the film in Singapore, like the hot weather?
FN: If we were wearing light clothing,
it wouldn't be difficult. However, as you can see from
the movie, most of us were wearing thick clothing, and
TL: For me, my scenes are shot mostly
at night, so I would spend the morning catching up on
sleep. I like the cleanliness of Singapore, and I like
the parks here, which allows for pet dogs to be brought
in, unlike in Hong Kong.
Q: Would you
like to stay in Singapore for the long term then?
TL: My wife likes the food here, like
Hainanese Chicken Rice, if she has that frequently,
she'll grow fat!
FN: I just watched a local movie -
I Not Stupid 2, and I liked the movie, and would recommend
friends to watch it. I thought the content of the movie
and the cast acting were great.
Q: Did you
like any particular Singapore Cuisine?
FN: I have something new every day!
I like coffee buns, and also Mee Pok - when in Singapore,
you must have noodles!
Q: Was there
any communication problems on the set, given the director
Max Makowski is Brazilian?
FN: Singapore's a multi-lingual society,
so there are people around who can translate one language
to another. Max speaks English, and we're not quite
good at it. We speak Mandarin with the other crew like
the sound recordist. Our dialogue in the movie is in
Cantonese, and sometimes he would ask the crew if we
(the actors) are speaking our lines in Cantonese correctly
(since that is our native language)?!
TL: The director, although young, is
very passionate about making the movie. I remember in
one scene with kids' ballet, he even worn a tutu and
danced together with the kids!
FN: And he has a scene in the movie
as well! Like Alfred Hitchcock where they would make
cameo appearances, see if you can spot Max Makowski!
Q: Any last
words prior to the screening of the movie?
FN: To switch off your mobile phones!
TL: I'm grateful and thankful to the
audience who turned up tonight for the premiere.
