Not too surprising a winner here. A SIMPLE LIFE turned out to be a big crowdpleaser here in Rotterdam, even with much of the audience not getting the in-jokes about the Hong Kong movie industry.

Thanks, Ard. The film will have its premiere in Sydney at the upcoming SFF in June, and I am really hoping I'll get a chance to see it then!
