In the third grade of middle school, he devoted himself to social work in order to help his family. His mother took him across the sea to Hong Kong to study at the “social university” in the 1960s. At that time, he lived in the old Tang building, which was very crowded; He liked to go to the spare time show, but he didn’t know what a movie was at that time. He went to the movie just for air conditioning. It was not until the 1970s that I enrolled in the “wireless University (i.e. wireless TV artist training course)”, and after graduation, I kept filming and talking about dialogue.
Looking back on the decades of making movies, Chow Yun fat found it very interesting. He went from Cantonese to Hollywood to ABC, and then went to the mainland to talk about Zhi Chi Shi“ At that time, we had to pay 100% of our efforts because we were making a living.
