Taiwanese Films Lead Golden Horse Awards Winners


Taiwanese films dominated the 47th Golden Horse Awards with three Taiwanese films: When Love Comes, Monga and The Fourth Portrait taking home major awards at the awarding ceremony on Saturday Nov 20 in Taiwan's Taoyuan City.

When Love Comes by Chang Tso-chi, won Best Picture, Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction. Taiwan's Chung Mong-hong won himself a best director honour for his second movie The Fourth Portrait, about a forlorn child using paintings to express his inner world.
