Title: A War Named Desire
Director: Alan Mak
Producer: Joe Ma
Infernal Affairs co-director Alan Mak helms A War Named Desire, a gripping, stylish crime film set in the sweltering heat of Thailand. Chun (Daniel Chan) journeys from Hong Kong to Thailand to search for his long-lost brother Charles (Francis Ng), but he doesn't seek reconciliation. Now a triad boss, Charles left the family under difficult circumstances, and Chun only desires money - and perhaps a glimpse of his mysterious brother's face. But rival gangsters use Chun against Charles, which forces the older brother to make a fateful decision: to follow the code of the underworld and allow his brother's death, or to honor his family and save his younger sibling. Both paths come with consequences, but Charles can only live with one choice...
A stunning crime film told in powerful, stylish strokes, A War Named Desire features a charismatic lead performance from Francis Ng, and an eye-opening supporting turn from pop songstress Gigi Leung. As Snow, Charles' acquaintance and unrequited lover, Gigi Leung displays towering presence and even a world-weary resolve that belies her willowy looks. Dave Wang and Sam Lee provide welcome character support, and Alan Mak orchestrates exciting, suspenseful action sequences that recall the heroic bloodshed of years past! A War Named Desire earns its cinema wings through a stunning symphony of blood, sweat, and tragic tears.
