Chen Yifei’s film Barber (aka The Music Box or 理发师) was completed posthumously and shown for the first time in Shanghai on April 9. The renowned oil painter cum businessman and film director died on April 10 of last year. The film’s producers had originally intended that the film be theatrically released on the first anniversary of Chen’s death, but it seems that they couldn’t finish up in time, so they did the April 9 commemorative showing, which you can read about here (in Chinese) and are planning for theatrical release later this month. Hong Kong mega-actress Rosamund Kwan (关之琳), a friend of Chen’s, was one among the various celebs and personalities who showed up to watch the film and pay their respects. The film, which is a love story set at the end of World War II and the beginning of Chinese Civil war period, was finished by Chen’s good friend, the Hong Kong film director Ng See-Yuen. The reports say that the film should be released around April 28. Here is more information on Chen Yifei’s previous films.
