Chen and producer Cheng Hong, who is Chen's wife, along with the film's leading actors—Yao Chen, Mark Chao, Wang Xueqi, Wang Luodan and Chen Ran—attended the event, while another leading actress, Gao Yuanyuan, who is Chao's girlfriend, was absent.
Chen Kaige, known for his top award-winning film at Cannes "Farewell to My Concubine," has turned his focus to ordinary people and hot topics in modern times in his latest film.
Chen said he felt great pressure because the film features an ensemble of various characters, including a billionaire, journalist, white-collar worker and young laid-off employee, which meant it needed recognition from people from all walks of life.
The film revolves around the problems caused by internet violence and "flesh searches" in modern society.
It is scheduled for release on July 6.
