(Taipei July 15, 2015) Director Hsiao-hsien Hou invited fellow directors Doze Niu, Yueh-hsun Tsai and Tesheng Wei to the preview of his award-winning movie "The Assassin" today. Hsiao-hsien said that he hoped to work faster and make at least one movie in every two years. Obviously very happy, he took out his mobile phone to film his guests to the occasion. The three junior directors expressed their admiration for his achievement. Yueh-hsun said, “The expression of kung fu in the entire movie presents me with a new imagination.” Tesheng commented in an abstractive way, “The more I watch the more I feel like watching the Discovery channel. The characters suddenly seem to become wolves.” Doze surprised everybody when he said, “Actually I feared that I might fall asleep because I did not sleep well last night and I fell asleep easily when watching his previous movies, every one. I even slept when watching ‘The Boys from Fengkuei’.” As the leading actress, Fanny Shu spoke little but performed marvelously in the movie. Having worked with her before, Doze praised her today, “Fanny is very captivating. With so little lines and almost no facial expression, she captures our attention tightly.”
