A Honk-Kong epic on life as it is, top clans.
20 March 2011 | by mkrjmnSee all my reviews

A hidden gem of a Honk Kong movie-industry, the about-three-decades-lasted story unfolds a usual landscape of local traditional semi-transparent inter-links between industry and simply crime while following two clans created by ex-school-friends reveling for and separating by feelings to the same girl.

Blood, murdering, thirst for reaches depicted as mix of comedy and tragedy easily consuming by any viewer, while local stars-performing and musical-helped this process much.

An eventual presence of English subtitles might usher this epic into outer world surely.
