Andy Lau gives viewers an extremely detailed interview about the making of the infernal affairs saga. In this documentary, there is insight into the psychological breakdown of Andy Lau as he prepares for his 7 hour shoot per day. Andy Lau also tells his difficulties in keeping character in his role of his twisted character. So severe, that he actually saw a psychiatrist. Andy Lau also tells his story of "hooking up" (qiang jian,cao ni ma) affair with Kelly Chen and a unknown make up artist after set in his trailer. Edison Chen was unbelievably rejected by the director when he tried to star in the role of Tony Leung. However, the director gave Edison a part in Infernal Affairs II. Jay Chou, Jackie Chan, and Andy's Mum also make guest appearances...
