Directed by Roy Chow Hing-yeung
For a man whose wife inexplicably committed suicide, life events can be haunted by the possibility of the impossible. For a cop whose wife committed suicide in such mysterious conditions, it means no murder case can ever truly be resolved.
On one such case, Detective George Lam (Simon Yam) investigates the brutal death of a larger-than-life classical music icon (played by Michael Wong), and begins to investigate the intense, creepy mute Wong Yuen-yueng (Nick Cheung), a recently paroled convicted murderer. After Wong’s capture and detainment, things appear opened and shut. What transpires though are more revelations to the contrary and Lam pursues every possibility, taking him deep into the past of lovers and daughters.
Director Roy Chow Hing-Yeung (Murderer) goes well beyond his love-it-or-hate-it debut by employing every trick in the Hong Kong action arsenal, but succeeds by delivering a well-paced, character-driven, and totally surprising story that will make audiences want to see it again. –Eric Lallana
