Taipei, March 29 (CNA) Oscar-winning Taiwan-born director Ang Lee and Chinese director Zhang Yimou exchanged their experience in moviemaking over the years at a seminar in New York Friday, according to a Beijing-based newspaper.

It was the first time the two famed directors from either side of the Taiwan Strait had spoken with each other on such an open occasion, and they shared their views on movies and their plans for their next works, the Beijing Morning Post reported Saturday. Lee was full of praise for Zhang's latest film "Coming Home," saying that "the movie has very placid scenery and is very realistc, but its force comes out in the end and several scenes impressed me." Zhang said for his part that he has turned away from the very vivid colors he has used in previous films such as "Hero" and "Curse of the Golden Flower," saying that t is a process of "going against myself," which he said is "unforgettable" and "very challenging." Lee also said that his next film will have boxing as its theme, while Zhang, who claims not to understand one word of Engish, said he will shoot an English- language movie in Hollywood, "which is for me a big challenge."
