Takezo Kensei Doc Part 2, Hayden in Shanghai Kiss

Reader KB let me know that the faux Takezo Kensei documentary has been updated with a second part, which you can watch by clicking this link. Plus, Hayden Panettiere was in a new movie called Shanghai Kiss that you might not have known about (scroll down to view a clip from the movie). The plot of the film: A struggling Chinese-American actor, who unwittingly finds himself involved with a high school girl, learns he has inherited his grandmother’s home in Shanghai. The American-raised character moves to China in an attempt to connect with his ancestry, leaving behind quite possibly the only girl who has ever loved him.

A word of warning: Although Hayden is featured prominently in the movie poster, she is NOT the star of the movie. Apparently the love interest in the film is Kelly Hu.

    Saw “Shanghai Kiss” at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival. Hayden’s one of the best parts of the film — she gets a fair amount of screen time and can definitely be considered a love interest. (Won’t say more!)

    I love Shanghai Kiss, the movie does have adult language and adult content, but outside of that Liam Liu (Ken Leung) is a man who must decide what is more important to him. living in Shanghai, China where he feels at home, but he was raised in Los Angeles, California and is loved by a sweet American caucasian high schooler Adelaide Bourbon (Hayden Panettiere) who loves him unconditionally. later, he realizes that Adelaide was real and his girl from Shanghai was still in love with Byron Mann and betrayed Liam to get his grandfather’s house. If I was in a situation like that, Hayden would be more important than a house left by my grandfather, I understand family is just as important as a girl who loves me, but at the price of losing a girl who means much more, I would hold on to her, and leave the house with someone who was trust worthy.
