2011, Andrew Lau slows down for Chinese movie A Beautiful Life, which shows the of a glamorous businesswoman and a tradition-bound policeman, with longer takes and less frantic editing. Andrew Lau protects this Chinese movie against his own sentimental sensibilities, by relying heavily on his actors, whom manage to keep the integrity and honesty of the narrative intact, even the story is a little too far into sentimentality.

Andrew Lau once said that a director might have about 4 to 5 movies made in years; but Hong Kong directors are so lucky as they could make whatever kinds of movies they wanted, which is why he once again directs a Chinese movie, a cinematic portrayal of one of the most miraculous emergency landings in the contemporary history of Chinese aviation.

Such a war-torn director, Andrew Lau was nervous and anxious while filming this Chinese movie, he admits that the biggest pressure is “How to present this movie well?” He even decided to build a flight simulator which is 1:1 with Sichuan Airlines flight 3U8633, in order to restore the authenticity of the actual incident in this movie.
