Bursztejn, Wang 'Starting Over' with new film


Producer Sylvain Bursztejn is teaming with Wang Chao for the director's third film, he said Thursday at the 10th annual Shanghai International Film Festival (HR 6/22).

Their previous collaboration, "Luxury Car," made a splash at the Festival de Cannes in 2006, taking the prize in the Un Certain Regard sidebar.

The new film, "Starting Over," is a French-Chinese co-production made in cooperation with Zhejiang Golden Globe Picture Co. Ltd. and will be helmed by Chen Jinhai, Bursztejn said in an interview.

It's the seventh Chinese production for Bursztejn's Paris-based Rosem Films.
