New York, I Love You - Some Exclusive (Sort Of) Shots


I didn't score any shots of Shu Qi (though you can see her in NYC's Chinatown on the poster), but here are a couple of images from new anthology film, New York, I Love You, opening October 16, 2009 in Washington, D.C..

(So far, it looks like it's only going to be playing at the E. Street Theatre but I'm hoping that it will also be showing at the more convenient -- for me at least -- Bethesda Row theatre.)

Chinese director Jiang Wen directs a segment and, after his visually compelling-if-somewhat-diffuse The Sun Also Rises, as well as his acting turns in things like Green Tea, I count myself a fan and I'm now eager to see what he can do in an anthology film with well-known Western actors.

From the Jiang Wen segment:

From the Yvan Attal segment (with HK action queen Maggie Q!):
