In an era of Hong Kong icons, no star shines brighter than Brigitte Lin Ching Hsia. Her talent, her grace, her professionalism, and of course, her beauty, have captivated movie audiences around the world. On the big screen or on stage, she has moved countless viewers as the inimitable "Asia the Invincible" (EAST IS RED) or as the hauntingly beautiful Cheung Yuet-Heung (DREAM LOVERS) and created a legion of fans along the way.
Finally, there's a book about Brigitte that comes from true admiration. Not quite a biography, the book intends simply to bring the heart and soul of the actress to fans and interested readers everywhere. Through a collection of interviews with the author, we get personal vignettes into Brigitte's life through the eyes of her friends, colleagues and the author herself. Rich in passion, loyalty and true friendship, Hong Kong cinema elite give the author glimpses into Brigitte's experiences in the entertainment industry, from her earliest days to her last film before she retreated into retirement. And last, we have Brigitte's own interviews with the author. Conducted over the course of years, these touch-points between "idol" and "fan" provide honest commentary from the actress on her work in the industry that spanned almost 3 decades. It truly is a window into her world.
