BLIND MASSAGE Takes Top Honours At 9th Asian Film Awards
Lou Ye's Blind Massage was named Best Film at the 9th Asian Film Awards, which were announced at a star-studded ceremony at The Venetian in Macau last night. The film also won the Best Cinematographer award. Jiang Wen's glitzy period piece Gone With The Bullets was the big winner of the night, however, taking home a trio of technical awards for its Production design, Costumes and Visual Effects.
Liao Fan was named Best Actor for Black Coal, Thin Ice, which also bagged the Best Screenwriter award for director Diao Yinan, while South Korean actress Bae Doo-na won the Best Actress prize for A Girl At My Door.
