The confusingly-titled new movie from the INFERNAL AFFAIRS team, starring Tony Leung and Takeshi Kaneshiro, revealed its confusing plot in yesterday's press conference and, less confusingly, they revealed that Shu Qi and Chapman To have joined the cast. Monkeypeaches posted the plot description and I'm going to reprint it here so you can get all the convolutions, but go to good ol' Monkeypeaches for photos and more info on the film:

          "Leung Chiu-Wai plays a senior police officer Lau and Takeshi Kaneshiro plays an alcoholic private detective Yau, who was once a cop working under Lau's supervision. Have been maintaining a mentor / protege relationship for many years, Lau and Yau are both involved in the investigation of a murder of an entire family, which is somehow connected to the past of Lau and Yau. Xu Jinglei plays Lau's new wife, who is unwillingly used by her husband for some plot and Shu Qi plays a woman having some unusual relationship with Yau."

Also Yau is an alcoholic.

I'm excited about this one. Great cast and sounds like the characters will be challenging for the two male actors.

why are female cops never corrupt? hmmm

but anyway, the plot isn't too exciting at the moment but we'll see what happens. These directors are some of the most inconsistent

Oooh, Xujinglei, she who owns the most popular blog in the world (based on Technorati). Didn't notice her name when I first read this entry few days ago, then saw her on the newspapers, realization dawned upon me whom she was.

Film's gonna get some great publicity on the Web.
