Marco Muller, director of the ongoing Venice Film Festival, is invited to watch the premiere of a special edition of Peter Chan's war epic "The Warlords" in Venice.
To pay his tribute to the Venice Film Festival, director Peter Chan has made a special edition of his new war epic "The Warlords" to be shown during the ongoing festival.
The six-minute short film describes the scene of a wretched war field, reflecting the complicated relations between the main characters.
Festival director Marco Muller was invited to watch the trailer. He praised the short version as a shocking six minutes, saying that it was the best present at Venice.
He said that he felt very regretful that the film missed this year's festival. But, having watched the special version, he thought it no bad thing to wait for such an opus. He was longing for the film's debut in next year's festival.
Peter Chan was reportedly still working on his film's post-production editing. The film is slated to open in Chinese theaters in December.
Peter Chan's musical romance "Perhaps, Love" was made as the close film of last year's Venice Film Festival.
