Chinese movies staged a surprise comeback at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival. As many as three Chinese films have been selected for the 23-film-strong main competition. Piaget, who spares no efforts on the film industry, for the 7th consecutive year co-hosting the annual Film Independent Spirit Awards in US, and becoming the key sponsor of the 50th Golden Horse Awards, as well as sponsored the Hong Kong Film Festival for many years. This time, on the Berlin Film Festival, Piaget luxury watches shined with Chinese actors Qin Hao and Guo Xiaodong.
Piaget and Film share much common ground. To create a movie and make it onto the international stage requires the pursuit of art and perfection by filmmakers. To create a watch or jewellery piece and give it a vivid life, requires the spirit of treating it as art piece and the unremittingly persevere for the best one can do, just like Piaget motto “Always do more than necessary”. When you are watching an art movie, or appreciating a Piaget luxury watch or jewellery, you will sense the common spirit behind.
