LIMBO

智齒

From director Soi Cheang, comes the biggest Hong Kong Chinese action crime thriller of the year. A serial killer is on the loose. Under public pressure to solve the case, the police reinstate veteran detective Cham (Gordon Lam Ka Tung) on active duty and assign him to the case with rookie cop Will (Mason Lee). However, Cham’s past returns to haunt him when he encounters To (Cya Liu), the girl who killed his wife and child in a car accident.

To redeem herself, To volunteers to work undercover for Cham on the case. However, Cham can’t control his hatred for the person who destroyed his life. As the idealistic Will and the emotionally unstable Cham clash over their vastly different investigation styles and Cham’s abusive attitude towards To, the truth becomes increasingly blurred…

Shot in stunning black & white with gorgeous cinematography from Cheng Siu-Keung (Johnnie To’s longtime director of photography), LIMBO immerses the viewer in a near future city on the edge. Soi Cheang crafts a metropolis that is vast and dense, teeming with a dark underbelly that threatens to overtake the urban sprawl. A must-see on the big screen, the Festival is proud to present this film at HIFF41.
