A government department known as the Six Panels appoints their best officer to infiltrate a special force called the Divine Constabulary, to ensure their way in stopping the circulation of counterfeit coin currency in the capital.
An espionage thriller set in the 1950s and adapted from the novel "Year Suan/Plot Against" by May Jia. Tony Leung Chiu Wai plays a blind man who works for a piano tuner. He is recruited for a spy mission because of his exceptional hearing.
I rarely watch Chinese movies because to me they are always fighting, gangster & fighting again. No good stories but this one is a surprise to me. I find it quite good and entertaining. I find that the movie is quite realistic unlike those happily ever after type of movies that you watch everyday (falling for your best friend etc...).
At first i reckon Alex Fong looks too girly but after watching the movie i reckon he's pretty good. First time i saw Alex Fong was in Marriage with a Fool. I thought that was quite good too but this one is better. I'll definitely watch more movies by director Patrick Kong. So far he's movies are not bad.
Highly recommend,its not a typical chick's flick.
