John reminded me that Heroic favourite Johnnie To (Election, The Mission, much more besides) has a new film that’s in Australian cinemas — but it’s a quick run, so get your skates on if you want to catch it!
Life Without Principle stars Lau Ching Wan, Denise Ho, Richie Ren and Myolie Wu in a timely crime drama set in today’s Hong Kong. A policeman, a banker and a small-time hood each have their own financial difficulties, particularly in today’s economy, and each of them develops a keen interest in a bag of stolen money that pops up, promising freedom. There’s a trailer here on YouTube:
It’s on all over the country (for the moment!) and there are more details on Dream Movie’s page for the film.
