The Chapman To Man Jat and Elanne Kong Yeuk Lam starred LOVE LIFTING (GO GUI OI) will be released on March 8, Women's Day, in the Mainland. Yesterday they attended a Beijing press conference. The event even prepared a certificate for Ah Jat to commend his perfect performance as a husband in the film.
Ah Jat praised this film as a rare script with sincerity in recent years. "Although many viewers may laugh as soon as they see me, but to me this movie has moved me more." Elanne pointed out that Ah Jat in real life treats his wife very well, as he makes coffee for her every morning. Ah Jat even shared his "good man secret" of treating his wife like his boss. "You would never argue with your boss." He felt that harmony was the most important between a couple. Someone had to take the blame and usually he would. When his wife was unhappy then he was unhappy.
The film's Hong Kong film release will be March 22 with advanced screenings. Elanne's line in the film was the most memorable to Ah Jat. "I used to lift weights for myself, now it's for my husband." At the time Ah Jat watched the film with his wife, who was moved to tears. Elanne said that the challenge that the film provided her was not just gaining weight or weightlifting, but also the crying scene in which director Herman Yau Lai To did not design his lines for her. He said that the camera was there, she could say whatever she wanted. For one of the crying scenes, many of the workers around Elanne were shedding tears. She said, "The director left right away. Then the next day he told me, he at the time could not help but cry either."
