Perhaps Love, a Chinese musical film directed by Hong Kong director Peter Chan, was screened during the 5th Foreign Films Week in Paris on Saturday. The 2005 movie, starring Chinese actress Zhou Xun and actor Takeshi Kaneshiro, tells a story of love triangle that develops during the making of a musical.

The Foreign Films Week in Paris is an annual event hosted by the FICEP (Forum des Instituts Culturels Etrangers à Paris). This year's edition is themed "Music and Cinema", featuring 23 films produced in 22 countries. It runs from March 6-15.

Perhaps Love was selected by the China Cultural Center in Paris, one of the eight foreign cultural centers that participate in this year's event.

Shen Zhongwen, deputy head of Chinese culture center, said he hopes the musical film could help the international audience have a better understanding of China from a different perspective. He also invited the viewers to attend the 8th China Film Festival in France, which will lift its curtains in Paris on May 28.
