Cannes 2011: First Trailer for Director Johnnie To’s ‘Life Without Principle’
Johnnie To’s movies are usually hit and miss, but he does have a huge following, so I felt many of our readers would appreciate the first trailer for his latest film. The Hong Kong film director and producer has made films in a variety of genres, though in the West he is best known for his action and crime movies, which have earned him critical respect and a cult following.
The first look at his latest endeavour Life Without Principle has finally come down the cinematic pipeline, and it does show some promise. The bank heist thriller stars Lau Ching-Wan (Black Mask), Ken Lo (Little Big Soldier), and Denise Ho (Merry Go Round). The film doesn’t appear to have a release date yet but here is the brief but official synopsis:
On a faithful day, three ordinary people suddenly find their destinies entwined when a loan shark gets assaulted after having withdrawn $10 million from the bank.
