Re: Triage

:biggrin: WOW. What fantastic news! This sounds like a loverly project for Mr. Lee! Colin Farrel as his son? That sounds pretty awesome! I hope it gets a theatrical release...considering it's being released at Canne's, but if not, films like this are almost always released on DVD (well...from my knowledge anyway....I own a few Cannes winners myself)

Can't wait for this! Thanks for letting us know!

Re: Triage

I guess everybody loves the entertainment that comes with film like "Star Wars" and "Lord of the Rings" and Mr. Lee was great in these films.

But this project really is different. It's a serious drama, it's a huge, challening part and it has a meaningful message about the cruelty of war, personal tragedies and forgiveness. From that point of view, this is the most interesting role for Mr. Lee since "Jinnah".

As I said in another thread, I'm sure that this film will be shown in cinemas all around the world, many festivals and probably win some awards.

I ordered the novel on which this film is based on and I'm looking forward to the book and the film.

I might add a little correction of the information given by Juan: the current distributor plans to start selling film right at the Cannes festival market this May, but don't expect the film to be completed by then.

Re: Triage

This sounds very interesting. Colin Farrel can be extremely good given the right material.It'll be nice to see him working with Christopher Lee.

The first real time I saw Colin Farrel on screen, was in the film Phonebooth, and was so impressed, I immediately bought the DVD. He is exceptional in that film. It's only a relatively short film, but he gives a very strong performance from beginning to end. It will be so good to see him and Mr Lee on screen together.

Best to all on this film.

Then I am not the only, Helen. I am not also familiar with Colin Farrel and I also hope to see this film. Waiting whenever it arrives in Brazil with subtitles.

Re: Triage

I agree completely with David up there - these are good times for Christopher Lee fans Smile

And Steve's right - HanWay Films is selling the film at Cannes in May but production is only set to finish in June. For those of you not familiar with Colin Farrell, he's not quite world-famous yet but he was in the recent 'In Bruges' where, like Matt said, he was good cos it was the right material (sorry Isabel, I tried looking for a Brazil release date but it's a limited release film and isn't making it to South America - he was in Miami Vice though if you want to see it Smile)

It's described as a dark psychological thriller - Steve's right in that Mr Lee's role will be deep and quite challenging, given the director's past successes. I for one can't wait to see it.

Re: Triage

Soooo....I just took out the book "Triage" from the library and I am eagerly anticipating reading it and seeing what is in store for Mr. Lee ^_^

Re: Triage

Haha, funnily enough I read this message right after I ordered the book from Amazon - it should be a good read, especially since I might be a psychiatrist myself some day (I could pick up some tips from Mr Lee).

Think the author'll notice that his sales went up as soon as Christopher Lee's involvement in the film was announced? Smile

Re: Triage

It's quite early fr this type of hype...but I am quite excited because after reading the book and knowing how wonderful a performer Mr. Lee is, something is screaming out to me: Awards! This is a drama made with a good budget by and Academy Award winning director, and while I think award nominations don't mean a thing when it comes to ability, does anyone else think that this may be THE role that Mr. Lee could get a nomination at "The Academy Awards" and "The Golden Globes" for perhaps a Best Supporting actor?

Re: Triage

I too just finished the book after checking it out at the library and found it an extremely interesting read. I cant wait to see what spin Mr. Lee puts on the Joaquin character. A must see for me.

Re: Triage

I agree Josh, this certainly looks like a part and a film that could well result in awards for many concerned. Fingers crossed, Mr Lee will be recognised for what appears to be a substantial role. I am thinking of getting the book soon as well.
I really am very excited about it's forthcoming release.
All the best.

A very nice blog. It's always great to read a fellow fans reaction to meeting Mr Lee in person. A memory to cherish that's for sure.
