Director: TSUI HARK, RINGO LAM, JOHNNIE TO
Legendary Hong Kong action directors Tsui Hark (Time & Tide), Ringo Lam (City on Fire), and Johnny To (Triad Election) team up to present this quirky noir tale about heists and double-crosses, told in seamless 30-minute segments and with 100 twists and turns and a seat-gripping ﬁnale (from Johnny To).
Three drinking buddies are visited one dark and stormy night by a strange old man who dazzles them with the tale of an ancient trteasure. The artifact in question — worth untold amounts of money — lies buried beneath an almost impenetrable government vault. To retrieve “the loot” — a magniﬁcent robe of inter- woven gold strands, its monetary value inestimable — the three friends must transcend their greed and selﬁshness, overshadowing their loyalty, trust and friendship. In this over-the-top entertainment, stylish visuals and separate directorial differences between each section make for a tour-de-force experience. (Cantonese, Mandarin with English Subtitles)
