A film by Johnnie To.
Cast : Louis Koo, Suet Lam, Tony Leung Ka Fai
Rival gang leaders are locked in a struggle to become the new chairman of Hong Kong’s Triad society. Election is severely interesting on the basis of it being a pure triad film. It really is a stunning and rich portrayal of blood ties, favours and allegiances within the crime world. The power struggles and succession battles that plague organized crime are a staple of American popular culture Who else has been watching the Sopranos but mobsters conduct their business a bit differently, on democratic rather than dynastic principles. Every two years the “uncles,” senior members of the Wo Shing Society, the oldest triad in Hong Kong, elect an up-and-coming younger boss as their chairman.
