Hong Kong has usually been the place international filmmakers and actors skip on their promotional tours. So every year's Hong Kong International Film Festival thrills local film buffs because the organisers can generally get filmmakers to stop by for a few days. And this year is no different. CitySeen was told yesterday that Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the French director who charmed movie audiences around the world in 2001 with his romantic fable Amelie, will be in town for the festival. His new film, A Very Long Engagement, will have its Hong Kong premiere at the festival on March 23. The romantic war drama, which stars Amelie's Audrey Tautou and Oscar winner Jodie Foster, won five Cesar awards in France last month and received two nominations for this year's Oscars. And watch out girls: the film's male lead, Gaspard Ulliel (left), will come to Hong Kong for three days from next Monday to promote the flick.
