Director Barbara Wong's tear-jerking romance film, "The Tears" ("Qing Cheng Zhi Lei"), held a news conference to mark the beginning of filming on Thursday in Shanghai.

The director was seen at the event with five of the leading actors from her film, namely Zhou Dongyu, Shawn Dou, Aarif Lee, Joe Chen and Richie Ren.

This will be the first time that Zhou Dongyu and Shawn Dou, who rose to stardom after starring in Zhang Yimou's film "Under the Hawthorn Tree", work together on a new project again, but this time they won't be performing as a couple.

According to Wong, the movie tells the story of three standalone yet related love stories. She named them the "three teardrops". The first teardrop is portrayed by Zhou Dongyu and Aarif Lee; the second teardrop follows characters played by Gigi Leung and Richie Ren; and the last one is about a young man who falls in love with an older woman, performed by Joe Chen and Shawn Dou.

The movie is scheduled to hit silver screens in time for Christmas.
