Now Showing on Cinema Asian America – CLEAN
I have to say this is one of my favorite Maggie Cheung movies. It’s amazing to see Maggie’s character travel to different cities speaking three different languages (English, French & Cantonese) fluently and convincingly. Her performance in CLEAN won her the best actress award at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival. Mark this one down as a must-see.
CLEAN stars Maggie Cheung (2046, HERO, IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE) as Emily Wang, a woman struggling with drug addiction. When her fading rock-star husband Lee overdoses on drugs, Emily finds herself abandoned by her friends and family. Custody of her young son Jay (James Dennis) is granted to Lee’s parents, Albrecht (Oscar®-nominated Nick Nolte – PRINCE OF TIDES, HOTEL RWANDA, CAPE FEAR) and Rosemary (Martha Henry).
Albrecht, however sensitive to Emily’s plight, demands that she change her life before re-establishing a relationship with her son. Motivated by that reality, Emily moves to Paris to overcome her demons and reclaim her life. Beatrice Dalle (BETTY BLUE, TIME OF THE WOLF) also stars.
We’ll be posting more films that are available on Cinema Asian America for the month of January. Stay tuned.
