Cai won the Silver Lion Award for Best Director with People Mountain People Sea, a story about a man who tried to avenge his brother's death.

A Xinhua reviews says while Cai could have made it a Hollywood-style hero's adventure, he stepped over the sagas and conflicts within the story and tackled it from a realistic point of view instead.

Deanie Ip became the Best Actress of the Venice Film Festival in 2012 for her role as a servant in Sister Peach – a story about the relationship between Sister Peach and the young lord from the family she works for.
