‘Exiled’ picked for Oscar run

Hong Kong picks Johnnie To crime pic

HONG KONG — Johnnie To helmed crimer “Exiled” has been selected to represent Hong Kong in the foreign language Oscar category.

Selection was announced Monday by the Motion Picture Industry Association.

Pic preemed in Venice last year and was widely sold in international territories by Media Asia.

MPIA chairman, Crucindo Hung, who said selection was made on a strong majority, said committee felt “Exiled” to be the Hong Kong film with the strongest chances with Academy voters and that it is classic To material.

Although much of the action shifts to neighboring Macau, pic is typical of To, who has come to typify tautly-made Hong Kong underworld actioners.
