Time magazine has an interview with Jackie Chan about his new film Shinjuku Incident. The film deals with illegal immigrants living in Japan. Chan was asked what message he wanted to send with the movie:
We want to send out a message to our people from China, from Indonesia, from Malaysia: no country is like home. When you’re in Japan, when you’re in America, you’re nobody. I play a nobody in Japan. Somehow all the temptations keep coming and you can’t fight them. If we can send out a message that nobody should escape from a boat illegally to Japan or even Australia or America, that you should just stay where you are, then that’s a good message.
