Maggie Cheung

Maggie Cheung Man yuk (born 20 September 1964) is a Hong Kong actress. Raised in England and Hong Kong, she has over 70 films to her credit since starting her career in 1983. Some of her most commercially successful work was in the action genre, but Cheung once said in an interview that of all the work she has done, the films that really meant something to her are Song of Exile, Centre Stage, Comrades: Almost a Love Story and In the Mood for Love.

Top 5 romantic movies recommendation for people doing Valentine's; In the Mood for Love - Splendid performances by Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung with a magical soundtrack and Directed by the maestro Wong Kar Wai Before Sunrise/Sunset/Dawn trilogy - Set over 20 years *ing - Julie Delphy and Ethan Hawke and Directed by Richard Linklater Choti si Baat - Amol Palekar, Vidya Sinha, Asrani with a ridiculously named Ashok Kumar as 'Julius Nagendranath Wilfried Singh' and Directed by the terribly underrated genius Basu Chatterjee City of Angels - Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan Serendipity - John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale in a movie that has strangely not been ripped off by Bollywood yet.
In memory of Sir Run Run Shaw, from all the fans of the beloved Kung Fu Nights/Kung Fu Double Feature. And from fans of the John Woo/Chow Yun Fat duo (and thru them, fans of Tarantino), Maggie Cheung, Wong Kar Wai (whose first job at Shaw's TV station, TVB) and BLADE RUNNER, which he helped finance. Farewell sir, we hope you're doing qigong in movie fan heaven.
While waiting on updates for Misogyny Marathon 2014, I've decided to watch: The Heroic Trio. Directed by Johnnie To, starring Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Cheung, Anita Mui, Damian Lau, Anthony Wong Chau-Sang, Paul Chun, James Pak, and Yan Yee Kwan. Hong Kong martial arts and superhero movie. Two of the characters are named The Wonder Woman and The Invisible Girl (other one's The Thief Catcher), so someone was having a little fun with this script.
NO WAY we're fighting over Tony Leung - HK divas Carina Lau & 'love rival' Maggie Cheung

Aha, of course, the creative visual priest who makes not only Maggie Cheung a goddess, but also Faye Wong
Romantic longing has provided the cinema with some of its most glorious and idealistic movies: Casablanca and Brief Encounter are films with an unabashed, unironic passionate flame at their centre. Movies such as Gone With the Wind and Doctor Zhivago lent something grand and epic to romantic love, but it was perhaps the much-loved weepie An Affair to Remember that did the most to introduce us to the more domestic idea of the chick flick or the date movie – the romantic film adored by women and tolerated by their husbands and boyfriends. The romantic comedy was a further refinement, almost invented in its modern sense by Woody Allen and revived by Rob Reiner with his smash-hit, When Harry Met Sally, a success that has spawned a thousand sucrose imitations. Wong Kar-wai's In the Mood For Love is probably the most potent, old-fashioned romance of recent times. Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung have that seductively heartbreaking self-sacrifice shown by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman or Celia Johnson and Tre ...
In case you were wondering, Hero was as amazing as ever. Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung: *swoon*.

Though better known as being one of the premiere stars of the Shaw Brothers golden era of kung fu pictures with around 130 acting roles to his credit, David Chiang also branched out into other areas of film production, including helming fifteen movies over the years. One of his last efforts in this area was 1991's Will of Iron, a cautionary tale against drug use. Despite having some solid star power, including Maggie Cheung, the end results are so melodramatic and pandering that this comes off more like a glorified ABC Afterschool Special than a true motion picture.

What is your all-time favorite film ever? Are you able to narrow your list of potentials down to 1? I have a list of my 50 all-time films somewhere. It is a list that was meticulously put together after I spent almost a month a few years back watching my 100 favorite films and choosing my top 50. And I have most of that list committed to memory. My all-time favorite film is "Hero" directed by Zhang Yimou (2002) (China) starring Jet Li, Tony Leung, Maggie Cheung, Chen Daoming and Zhang Ziyi.

Maggie Cheung en 'In the Mood for Love' (2000) de Wong Kar-wai
In The Mood for Love by Wong Kar-Wai is definitely in my favorite-movie-of-all-time list. It was beautifully shoot. The script is precise and sophisticated. The acting of both Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung is exhilarating. Though the director was known to be an *** it can be seen in this movie that he was a man of details. Every scenes, every moments were beautifully captured in this film.
Celebrated actress, Maggie Cheung, shares in this video why she is a fan of Mandarin Oriental. Now, we...
Crouching Tiger's awful, but Zhang Ziyi has a similar kind of presence (although she's obviously no Maggie Cheung)
Zhang Ziyi? Amazing. If there's one person I'd consider a suitable alternative to Maggie Cheung, it's Zhang Ziyi.
I think that's the plot of one of those old Maggie Cheung movies interspersed with props and sets from a couple Jet Li etc films
