Film description

In the early 1997, Hong Kong is still a British colony and a local economic power, but it will all change in just six months. Three legendary local gangsters know it all too well. Each of them specializes in a different type of crime, but they all have to reorganize to adjust to the new situation. When a rumor about one final score before the transition starts circling the underworld, Cheuk Tsz-keung decides to get in touch with his fellow mobsters...

Johnnie To invited three young filmmakers, who proved themselves in his Fresh Wave program, to direct the three intertwining stories of "Trivisa." Frank Hui, Jevons Au, and Vicky Wong were supposed to continue the work of their master, but "Trivisa" turned out to be a powerful, stylish, and humorous farewell to Hong Kong's true gangster films, one of the craziest and most inspiring genres in contemporary cinema. Once again we can see the familiar faces from the Milkyway Studio productions, flooded by the blood-red light in the streets where no one can be trusted… Nobody makes films like this anymore.
