Island of Greed is a 1997 Hong Kong action crime thriller film directed by Michael Mak and starring Andy Lau and Tony Leung Ka-fai. The film is set and filmed in Taiwan and deals with corruption in the Government of the Republic of China.
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.
