Behind the scene:

"Letter of a Strange Woman" is the most influential love novel of Austrian writer Zwweg with an international reputation, which has a sensation of immortality in the world film industry. In terms of poetry, short theory, novels, drama, and character biography, I have excellent accomplishments in writing, especially novels and character biography. Representative works include "Let's Believe in a Strange Woman", "The Story of Chess", "Twenty -Four Hours of a Woman's Life" and so on.

The production cost of "A Story of a Strange Woman" is as high as RMB 20 million. Is it worthwhile to accompany Xu Jinglei to accompany Xu Jinglei? Dong Ping, the president of this film investor, told reporters yesterday: "We are equipped with the strongest production team for Xu Jinglei's" Let's Believe in a Strange Woman ". We are willing to spend a lot of money to support the new power of Chinese films!"

To some extent, Xu Jinglei was lucky. She used 20 million to shoot her second movie. The main creator of this movie is a big name like Jiang Wen and a star -rated photographer like Li Pingbin. At this time, many young directors who also have the same movie ideal as her age are still worried about finding money for their virgins. I don't want to prove some unfairness through this comparison, but to say that in the current Chinese film industry, we do need to strengthen the advantages of resources. For a young director such as Xu Jinglei, the biggest problem is not anything else, but how to reflect this high -quality resource advantage. Obviously, the director did: she used all the conditions to shoot a good story she wanted to tell. For a director, this is actually the result. But for the film market, this has just begun.

Polyway pushed Xu Jinglei's self -directed "The Letter of a Strange Woman" and the "Peacock" directed by Gu Changwei. Both Xu Jinglei and Gu Changwei belong to the newcomers of the Chinese director, but the investment of these two films has reached 20 million yuan. Although they have taken a certain risk, Dong Ping is convinced of the ability of the two directors. He said: "We support excellent filmmakers like Xu Jinglei and Gu Changwei. We are willing to provide good conditions to young people who are interested in film. We hope to emerge more creative Chinese filmmakers. The responsibility is! "

A stories of wind and dust

A man received a thick letter on the 41st birthday. This letter comes from a dying woman, telling a lingering love story, and the hero of this story knows nothing about it.

The story started 18 years ago, and when she first met a man, the two had a brief combination, and then she experienced the obsession of the girl, the passion of youth, and even the dust, but she had not changed her love for men until she died. Decide to confess ...

"A letter from a strange woman" is adapted from the novel of the famous writer Zwigg, and it is directed by Xu Jinglei. Xu Jinglei said: "Originally wanted to move this story directly to modern times, but the script felt very unsatisfactory to half. Later, I tried to put this story in the 1930s and 1940s, and suddenly it felt like." The film investment Fang Huayi Media also introduced: "Jiang Wen as the actor in this movie, if Jiang Wen's drama in" My Dad "can only be counted for 1 minute, in" The Letter of a Strange Woman " There are 100 minutes in the drama. "

On the day the investor held a celebration meeting for Xu Jinglei and the opening ceremony of Xu Jinglei and Xu Jinglei's new film "A Story of a Strange Woman", director Zhao Baogang, Ye Daying, singer Su Xiaoming and Zhang Jiemo and the teachers of Xu Jinglei Film Academy Liu Juzi was present to congratulate. In addition, the crew members of the film "Me and Dad" attended the celebration meeting. For everyone's congratulations, Xu Jinglei responded with a smile: "I'm not so good. I am more winning the more prizes now." She said that the mainstream culture always reflects the spirit of the waves of the front of the Yangtze River, and she just caught up.

Xu Jinglei's TV series debut is "A Wind and Snowy Moon". The director of the play Zhao Baogang said: "When I was filming at the time, I told her Teacher Xu, and now I still call her Teacher Xu. Because I have made so many TV series, I haven't made a movie until today, and she is now almost almost soon. I have taken two pieces. I hope Teacher Xu can think of me when making a movie, because I want to act. "Behind the scenes: 20 million to support Chinese film new power

The production cost of "A Story of a Strange Woman" is as high as RMB 20 million. Is it worthwhile to accompany Xu Jinglei to accompany Xu Jinglei? Dong Ping, the president of this film investor Pauli Way, said: "We are equipped with the strongest production team for Xu Jinglei's" Letter of a Strange Woman ". We are willing to spend a lot of money to support the new power of Chinese movies!"

Polyway pushed Xu Jinglei's self -directed "The Letter of a Strange Woman" and the "Peacock" directed by Gu Changwei. Both Xu Jinglei and Gu Changwei belong to the newcomers of the Chinese director, but the investment of these two films has reached 20 million yuan. Although they have taken a certain risk, Dong Ping is convinced of the ability of the two directors. He said: "We support excellent filmmakers like Xu Jinglei and Gu Changwei. We are willing to provide good conditions to young people who are interested in movies!"

And how Xu Jinglei, director of the screenwriter, has a mentality? During the filming of the film, Xu Jinglei has always been confident in the film. In order not to affect the normal shooting, she has been refused to disclose the news from the beginning of the film.

The investors organize the media to explore classes to personally control and strictly control the number of people present, and everything must be absolutely confidential. At that time, "Belly" filmed a night show in a cultural relic building in Tianjin. The heroine played by Xu Jinglei watched the drama in the drama building and inadvertently found the man who was in love with Xi Ri (a writer played by Jiang Wen). Xu Jinglei on the set was already dressed in the costume, and looked calmly to work in an orderly manner in various departments. And Huang Jue was wearing a Kuomintang military uniform, looking at the book quietly, seemed a little embarrassed, and often scratched his head to think about the problem, as simple as a student. He expressed his admiration for Jiang Wen and Xu Jinglei, and admitted that Jiang Wen was his favorite actor.

In addition, from time to time in the shooting venue, he came over from time to time, and looked at the light situation by Huang Jue's face with the metering watch in his hand. He was the famous photographer Li Pingbin in Taiwan. He has filmed a large number of outstanding works such as "Fantastic Year" (2000), "Heartbeat" (1999), "Sea Flower" (1998), "Half Life" (1997), and "Love and Dust" (1987). This time, Li Pingbin was invited by Xu Jinglei to take photography, which shows that the producer has a good intention in the production of this film.

The wonderful quotes of "Letter":

Inspiration: My movie does not want to inspire others and educate others, but just express it with passion and move the audience. "Wushan Cloud" in the United States is also adapted from this original, but with strong moral critical colors, this is the limitations of the times. Contemporary women only pay attention to their feelings in love. My "Letter" is a very pure love story that contemporary people can understand.

Beijing: This may be a personal factor. I feel deeply affectionate to Beijing, and there is a kind of atmospheric thing in Beijing. I also wanted to choose contemporary Beijing as the background, but it was difficult to go on when I wrote the second part, because the heroine's unmarried childbirth illegitimate child, her communication flower identity will cause a lot of sensitive social problems. I don't want to deviate from these sensitive issues. In the original book, I want to tell a pure love story to pay attention to the emotion itself, not social issues.

Adapted: The theme of emotion is no national borders, and love is also an eternal topic of human beings, so there is no obstacle to this adaptation. The only difference is that the original narrative is very enthusiastic, and my movie has a very restrained thing in it. The emotional way of the movie is different from the original.

Director of men and women: China is now equal between men and women, not the previous men and women. Women do things easier than men. I don't think there is pressure.
