In Buddhism, “trivisa” is the name of the three poisons that lead to suffering: delusion, greed and anger. Three concepts that are represented in an equal number of criminals operating in Hong Kong in 1997, just before the island recovered its sovereignty, and whose exploits are followed in this triangular thriller that’s as exciting as it is searing in its political commentary. In his role as producer, with this film Johnnie To backs a trio of Hong Kong movie talents.
