According to Ent163.com (17 Sep 2008), in 1990, Faye Wong (王菲) played a role in a 50-minute film that few have seen and that has never been mentioned in Faye biographies or filmographies. She is listed in the credits as Wang Jing Wen (王靖雯). The title of the film, Other Professional Female Entertainer (别姬), also translates to Do Not Kyi. Faye, who was 20 at the time, plays the part of a middle-aged, 30-40 year-old singer in the 19th century. Faye’s performance is described as “slightly jerky.”
Hopefully, someone will post the movie in YouTube or provide a URL where we can see it.
[Added a few minutes later:] I just saw a video featuring clips from this film at Sohu.com. I’ve seen this film before. It’s been around a while. She plays the part of a gay singer in a love-hate relationship. In a future post, I’ll write about this movie.
