Johnnie To

Director / Producer / writer / Actor

Johnnie To, Hong Kong director. Growing up in Hong Kong's famous "three regardless zone" , Kowloon Walled City enjoyed watching movies as a child. At that time, the theatres were divided into morning shows and free shows. Cantonese feature films were usually shown at morning shows and Western films were shown at free shows. Johnnie To chose Western films for cheap viewing, mostly action and Westerns. Later, when Johnnie To's father worked at the Dongle Theater, Johnnie To often watched free scenes backstage. It was only when I was studying that I began to watch mandarin films, and I had the idea of doing movies.
