Feng Xiaogang is China’s most successful film director. In January 2009, he received international attention as the first Chinese filmmaker to cross one billion yuan at the domestic box office. Feng became popular among Chinese audiences for his unique comedies in the 1990s, including The Dream Factory, Be There or Be Square and Sorry, Baby, which explored the dreams and aspirations of everyday Chinese people. In 2000, at the height of his success, he changed direction with breakthrough divorce drama Sigh. In the following years, he made action drama A World Without Thieves, ambitious palace intrigue The Banquet and the epic war drama Assembly. In 2008, his sophisticated and modern romantic comedy If You are the One broke box office records to become the most successful Chinese film of all time, a title now held by Aftershock.
