Program Note

Soft-hearted detective Larry Lam (played by Louis Cheung) spends so much of his time looking after street cats that he falls into debt and is pursued by his creditors. One day, he is assigned to take care of a parrot, that is  a key witness of a crime where the body of a man was discovered. Though the victim was involved in a jewelry heist 3 months earlier, and the key suspect is Sean Wong (played by Louis Koo), who is still on the run. Devoid of any charisma but with a knack for hunches, Lam begins to suspect his boss, officer Yip Sau Ching, played by Philip Keung. The writer of a number of Jonnie To and Stephen Chow films, including Shaolin Soccer, filmmaker Fung Chihchang’s career as a director spans modern Western to musicals, and here he attempts an intriguing crime thriller that shies away from clichés with a fresh new ensemble that projects a cyclical good versus evil scenario in a story of melodramatic psychodrama. (Ellen. Y. D. KIM)
