Fatt “Kor” & All About Ah Long Theme Song


Chow Yun Fatt is my all time favourite Chinese actor. I grew up watching his dramas and movies such as The Bund (Chinese: Shang Hai Tan; Cantonese: Xiong Hoi Tan; literally: Shanghai Beach), God of Gamblers (Chinese: Du Shen; literally: God of Gambling) A Better Tomorrow (Chinese: Ying Xiong Ben Se, Cantonese: Ying Hung Bun Sik; literally: True Colors of a Hero), just to name few?? πŸ™‚ Who can forget his forever super cool pose in most of his movies with twin guns (usually two Beretta 92s I think) and dark shades during a gunfight!!??

So naturally I dreamed to be Hui Man-Keung (The Bund), as Mark Kor (A Better Tomorrow), Ko Chun (God of Gamblers), characters played by Chow Yun Fatt when I grow up one day. *chuckles* At one time, I even kept my hair long enough so I could comb it to follow Ko Chun, The God of Gamblers style hahaha! Too bad, I never get myself a ‘Mark Coat’, as they became known-a long, heavy woolen coat worn by him in the movie ‘A Better Tomorrow’ hehe. I must be crazy thinking to wear that in Malaysia with the hot and humid climate here. Chow Yun Fatt often is seen with a trademark toothpick in his mouth, mostly in John Woo films and I think he is the only actor looks cool doing that ROTFLMAO!

The Los Angeles Times proclaimed Chow Yun-Fat “the coolest actor in the world.” At that point, he had not even made a single American film, but he had already become an icon. Being one of the hottest screen commodities in Hong Kong, Chow moved to Hollywood in the mid-’90s in an attempt to duplicate his success on an international scale. His first two films, The Replacement Killers (1998) and The Corruptor (1999), were box-office disappointments. His next film Anna and the King (1999) did better, but the success was mostly credited to actress Jodie Foster. He returned to Asia for the (2000) film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and it became a winner at both the international box office and the Oscars. In 2004, he made a surprise cameo in the mainland Chinese indie-hit Waiting Alone. In 2006, he teamed up with Gong Li to star in the new film, Curse of the Golden Flower by Zhang Yimou.

Chow is still waiting for the type of success he once enjoyed in Hong Kong. He once admitted to a Hong Kong reporter that his ultimate goal is to win an Oscar as an actor. When asked what if it never comes true, he replied “I would just have to laugh about it…” (source : Wikipedia)

This is a song from his movie All About Ah-Long (Chinese: Ah-Long De Gu Shi literally: Story About Ah-Long). I love this movie and I always shed my tears watching it. Sob.. sob.. (Not crocodile tears okay!). It is a very powerful human drama, in a stirring haze of mood, a very affecting and emotional movie. The story revolves around Ah-Long, a father living a low-class lifestyle, while trying to raise his son, Porky. One day his ex-girlfriend resurfaces after a 10-year absence wanting to take her son away from him. With his world shattered, he must decide between what is best for his son and his own future happiness. I just love stories that touch on the strong bond between father and son.

The theme song itself has a very disturbing emotional hook to it, you feel the world is crashing down, drowning you in sea of sadness listening to it. (Ok, just me.) I have this song in my mobile and I listen to it many times, mostly before I go to sleep. LOL! It gave me that melodramatic feeling, so I can sleep better haha! Ehem, I have some other songs like this that I listen to for me to hypnotize myself into deep, peaceful sleep.

Song - Chinese: Ni De Yang Zi; literally: Your Face (LOL!) This song is in Cantonese, the original version. Mandarin version is

Trailer for the movie. The song is at the end of the trailer.

p/s : I actually just want to post up this song πŸ˜› As usual.. melebih-lebih hehe!

*Fatt Kor - Big Brother
