TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Rolling… and ACTION! Arms flail and feet fly in a frenzied
blur, punctuated by the smacking sound of flesh when the blows reach their designed mark, followed by the grunting of the latest baddie to get a beat down (the author) by the film’s kung fu heroine.
The scene is a one of the final fight sequences before the final climatic battle between “Lily,” the protagonist, and “Samsara,” an evil gangster, in the independent kung fu film “Sweet and Sour” currently being shot in Taipei. The film tells the story about a Taiwanese woman’s quest for justice and revenge against Samsara, an English drug lord and human trafficker, who murdered her parents when she was seven years old.
Still from film with “Bagua fighter,” played by the author, squaring off with “Lily,” played by Ashley Tso. [FULL STORY]
