Infernal Affairs

See the film that inspired Martin Scorsese to make a hash of it for his “The Departed”. Hong Kong great Tony Leung plays a cop so deep undercover in a triad that hardly anyone knows who he really is anymore, himself included. Andy Lau plays a gangster turned mole inside the police. Who will uncover the other’s identity first? It’s a great story without Jack Nicholson running amok.

2002 Andy Lau-Wai-keung, Alan Mak. 2.35:1 Color/B&W DCP 101min. In Cantonese with subtitles.
