A FRENCH movie-goer was invited to the Hong Kong premiere of Goldeneye, the new James Bond film, at the Ocean Theatre on Tuesday night. The invitation to the event, sponsored by Perrier, said: 'Cocktail and movie at 8.45pm.' He and hundreds of guests turned up on time, but the film was not shown until 10pm. At the end, they were handed special Christmas bottles of Perrier with 'Noyeux Joel' on them. The Frenchman asked: 'Perhaps you could find out what language that's in?'
