My husband has stuck this lovely gold and red poster in our living room as a Christmas ornament this year, but “Chinese Odyssey 2002”, starring my beloved actors Tony Leung and Faye Wong (pictured on the left) is of course one of the so-called “lunar new year films” released annually in Hong Kong in late January or early February to boost cinema ticket sales during the three-day holidays. The Year of the Tiger starts on February 14th 2010, which is a good reason to celebrate it even if you’re not Asian.  Especially as Tony Leung actually IS a Tiger 🙂 More information on lunar new year films at: http://www.yesasia.com/us/yumcha/kung-hei-fat-choy-lunar-new-year-films-in-hong-kong-cinema/0-0-0-arid.58-en/featured-article.html
