    Nearly 20 exciting Chinese language films from Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan and around the world have been presented at the 35th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which was open on Thursday night in Canada' s largest city.

    In the next coming days, Toronto has rolled out the red carpets to welcome super stars like Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth, Robert De Niro, Helen Mirren, Kevin Spacey and Bill Gates.

    However, true film lovers also have had opportunities to enjoy the beauties and mysteries in the films from across the sea, exploring a different world and life style that they may not be familiar with.

    The long term TIFF's "most favorite" Chinese film maker Jia Zhangke has brought his "I Wish I Knew" to Toronto for its north American premiere. Jia was honored by TIFF as "one of the youngest masters of cinema" early this year.

    In his newest feature documentary production commissioned to commemorate the 2010 World Expo, Jia was trying to portray a chapter of modern Chinese history through interviews and scenic views of Shanghai, the largest city in China and Far East, in its continuous evolution.
