A cop at the Hong Kong Regional Crimes Bureau tries to shed light on the confession of a drug addict and the murder of a 16-year-old prostitute: what he discovers is devastating. Suspended between the past (1998) and the present (2009), a tragic investigation into the most nihilistic recesses of the human mind, photographed by Christopher Doyle in gloomy and desperate colors. With a star turn by Aaron Kwok, whose work is steadily maturing.
Christopher Doyle has led an extraordinary life, becoming almost by chance on of the world’s top directors of photography. He has always lived in pursuit of freedom and experiences, finding odd jobs all over the world and ultimately working with Gus Van Sant, Barry Levinson, Philippe Noyce, Zang Yimou, Wong Kar Wai and becoming a director himself. A plunge into the exceptional life of the Gran Premio Torino.
