Wang Lei as silent hero Ho Feng Shan in The Last Visa

Wow. Based on a true story of Chinese diplomat Ho Feng Shan, whose heroic deeds – defying orders and issuing Visas for thousands of Jews during WWII so they could escape Austria – were only known after his death and honored in 2001. If I were an actor, playing a silent hero like Ho Feng Shan would be an honor and something for me to carry on for the rest of my life. Golden Eagle Best Actor, Wang Lei (Ordinary World), will be taking on the titular role of the young and reckless and equally heroic diplomat while veteran Chen Bao Guo (All Quiet in Peking) will be playing his boss, one who guides and provides help along the way. This is combination of powerhouse acting right here. The Last Visa (最后一张签证) is co-produced by China’s Omnijoi Media Corporation and Czech Republic’s Twin Star Film.

    Great and inspiring story of a great man. Would have been preferable if the European voices were not dubbed in Chinese.

      Yeah, I hope it’s just the trailer with Chinese dub for the European characters. It’s like when they have Chinese dub for the Japanese characters in Republican-era dramas, where they are technically speaking in Japanese to each other..it loses the sense of authenticity. This drama definitely looks fantastic. I am keen to watch it 🙂
