Life without principle

Johnnie To

Crisis has never been so much fun. The relations in Johnnie Tos‘s genre universe in Hong Kong are getting out of balance when the imminent Greek national bankruptcy puts the world financial markets under distress. The fate of a bank employee, a police officer and two thugs is tied to the stock market prices which seem to be constantly volatile. Johnnie To, known in this country as the unsung master of the Hong Kong cinema, combines thriller, cop film and comedy and creates a portrait of a society in transition. “Life without principle“ premiered in Venice and is being shown in Germany for the first time.
