TRIAD ELECTION (2006)

A film by Johnnie To

Cast: Louis Koo, Simon Yam, Nick Cheung

As election time nears, current Triad chairman Lok (Yam) faces competition from his godsons. At the same time, Jimmy (Koo) looks to increase his business relations with mainland China.

This film is stylish but avoids the typical action sequence. It is also an uncompromising film, violent, serious, politically controversial, and spectacularly unsympathetic and interesting. Overall a great film by Johnnie To.
