The celebrated life and tragic death of famed silent film star Ruan Ying Lu is told in Stanley Kwan’s award-winning docudrama Center Stage. Also known as Actress, the film covers a period from 1929 to 1935, when Ruan Ling Yu (Maggie Cheung) ruled the screen as the undisputed goddess of Chinese cinema. But in private, Ruan was a rebellious figure, who bristled against the rigid societal conventions of her time. Ruan took her own life at the age of 25 amidst tabloid criticism and controversy, but her legend is immortalized in Stanley Kwan’s loving, engrossing work. Utilizing archival footage from Ruan Ling Yu’s early films, interview segments with her contemporaries and modern actors, re-enactments of select Ruan Ling Yu performances by Maggie Cheung, and dramatized sequences depicting the turbulent last years of her life, Center Stage paints a complex, structurally enthralling portrait of a beloved artist of the cinema.

Maggie Cheung turns in the performance of a lifetime as Ruan Ling Yu, earning her the Best Actress in the 42nd Berlin International Film Festival that cemented her reputation as quite possibly the leading Asian actor of her generation. The film also dominated the 12th Hong Kong Film Awards by winning 5 awards in 1992. Co-starring Cecilia Yip, Tony Leung Ka Fai, and Carina Lau, Center Stage is a stunning work of art that can simultaneously challenge and delight film lovers everywhere..

Directed by Lee Yong Joo (Possessed), Architecture 101 turned into one of Korea’s biggest movies of 2012 with its gently nostalgic story of first love revisited. Han Ga In (The Classic) and Uhm Tae Woong (SIU) star as the college sweethearts who cross paths again years later. The film alternates between the protagonists’ present-day reencounter and memories of ambiguous puppy love back in the nineties. The younger counterparts are played by two of last year’s breakout young stars, Lee Je Hoon (Bleak Night, Front Line) and miss A member Bae Suzy (Dream High). Selling over four million tickets, Architecture 101 was such a big hit, it even inspired a nineties nostalgia trend in Korea.

Architect Seung Min (Uhm Tae Woong) gets an unexpected visit one day by Seo Yeon (Han Ga In), his first love whom he hasn’t seen in many years. Seo Yeon came by especially to ask him to redesign her home in Jeju, and she won’t take no for an answer. The two first met 15 years ago in Architecture 101, back when Seung Min (Lee Je Hoon) was a naive university student smitten with headstrong Seo Yeon (Suzy). Both then and now, the two friends grow closer and closer even as life’s crossroads pull them in different directions..
