JUDE LAW was forced to forget everything he knew about acting to shoot new movie MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS, because director WONG KAR WAI insisted all the cast improvised. Law’s co-star in the film, singer and first-time actress Norah Jones claims she loved the experience because she had never been taught to act - but the British star admits it was tough adjusting to the Hong Kong director’s style. Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival, which My Blueberry Nights opened yesterday, Law said, "A lot of rules are thrown out of the window, and you feel free not knowing what is going to happen each day." My Blueberry Nights, Kar Wai’s first English-language film, chronicles the year-long journey of Jones’ character across the United States and her encounters with love and loneliness. The movie is one of 23 films in competition this year for the festival’s top prize, the Palme d’Or.
