"With this movie, Zhang Yimou and I set out to defy every stereotype that you can think of. All the roles you constantly see Chinese actors in are not in this movie," says Peter Loehr. "There is no mafia guy, there is no triad guy, there is no prostitute…. I think when people see the movie they'll think, 'Wow, this is a big step in the right direction, and this is a true collaboration between actors in both countries and they at least have equal footing.'"
