Movie "Love" selected for the Berlin Film Festival

Taiwanese movie Love had its first taste of success when it was selected for the Berlin Film Festival recently. The movie has not been released in cinemas.

This is movie director Doze Niu's second feature film to make it into the festival after his 2010 movie Monga.

When told of the good news, the director excitedly said, "I'm very happy that Love is selected for the Berlin Film Festival, because it's a commercial film that talks about love. I really feel that heaven has been good to me, and I'm grateful to the cast and crew for their hard work."

Doze later informed the cast the good news via his microblog.

Actor Eddie Peng replied happily, "Good omen in the year 2012. [I'm] setting off the firecrackers."

Shu Qi also wrote, "Awesome."

While the production team is doing their best to coordinate everyone's schedule, only Mark Chao has confirmed that he will attend the festival on Feb 16.

Ethan is due for military enlistment next month. If he does attend, the Berlin Film Festival will be his last event before entering the army.

Love is scheduled to open in cinemas in Taiwan on Feb 10, and four days later in China, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Cast members are expected to begin promotion of the movie abroad for a week, beginning Feb 9, before flying straight to Berlin for the film festival.
