June 8, 2018, Shanghai---- The second Bellagio hotel in the world, following on from the legendary Las Vegas original, Bellagio Shanghai held a grand celebration on the theme of "Bellagio Only" today. This remarkable event also unveiled the impressive premiere showing of the beautiful brand film of this hotel which was directed by the famous film director Lu Chuan. The wonderful moments in the film immersed the guests in the elegance and romance of Bellagio Shanghai and allowed them to appreciate the approachable luxury offered by this legendary brand.
Elaborately conceived by director Lu Chuan, working for the first time with a hotel brand, and after nearly a year of creative development, the film has invited the young actress Tang Jingmei and the international supermodel Mariusz Smoliński as the leading roles. Through a man's recollection of the wonderful memories of his life and artistic visual fantasy, the film perfectly captures the brand core values which are "elegant, romantic, beautiful and artistic", immersing the viewers in the scene as they experience the most beautiful and important times in life. The professionally made film was mainly shot in Bellagio’s flagship hotel in China---- Bellagio Shanghai.
Mr. Liu Yaning, the director of Diaoyutai MGM Hospitality said: "Lu Chuan is one of the leading Chinese film directors. He enjoys huge influence and popularity in the world. It is a great honor to have invited him to direct the brand film for Bellagio. The film is a perfect synergy of director Lu’s pursuit of art and the brand spirit of Bellagio hotel, accurate and profound. It allows people to experience wonderfully elegance, romance, beauty and art, and conveys the brand belief of ‘Nothing Short of Unforgettable’. We look forward to more cooperation with Lu Chuan in the future."
Referring to this cooperation, director Lu Chuan smiled and said: "This film has been in creative development for the longest period of any brand film I have worked on and, of course, it is one of my most accomplished works. Bellagio comes originally from the beautiful Lake Como in northern Italy and it created a legend in the hotel industry in Las Vegas. Obviously, the brand is different from traditional hotels and has a unique character. At Bellagio Shanghai, I found every corner is full of art and story, gorgeous and elegant, all of which inspired me. I hope I have used the language of film to convey my understanding and experience of this brand, the yearning and enjoyment of the wonderful journey of life, and to attract more people to love and visit Bellagio.”
