Triv­isa

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MOVIES - – Mum­taj Begum

PRO­DUC­ERS John­nie To and yau nai Hoi hired three direc­tors – Frank Hui, Jevons Au and Vicky Wong – to col­lab­o­rate on this thriller, which fo­cuses on three crim­i­nals rein­vent­ing them­selves in the year 1997 ( when Bri­tish- ruled Hong Kong was re­turned to China). In the roles of the three kings of thieves are Jor­dan Chan, richie ren and Gor­don Lam. Chan’s char­ac­ter is an in­tel­li­gent crim­i­nal who is also flam­boy­ant and ar­ro­gant. ren plays a bad­die who earns a rep­u­ta­tion af­ter rob­bing sev­eral gold shops us­ing an AK- 47. And Lam’s char­ac­ter is kind of a chameleon with one too many iden­ti­ties. In the film’s pro­duc­tion notes, pro­vided by GSC Cin­e­mas, it is re­vealed that each di­rec­tor fo­cused on one char­ac­ter. Di­rec­tor Hui’s fo­cus fell on Chan’s role, Kwai Ching Hung. “The di­rec­tor was so en­thu­si­as­tic that he wrote an 8,000- word de­scrip­tion of the char­ac­ter I play,” Chan said of his di­rec­tor. “I like work­ing with new direc­tors. We have rap­port. I hope John­nie To’s sup­port of new­com­ers in this film will reignite Hong Kong film­mak­ers’ pas­sion both be­hind and in front of the cam­era, and bring back the glo­ri­ous day of Hong Kong cinema.”

Triv­isa opens at cin­e­mas na­tion­wide on April 7
