It was announced today that Life Without Principle (Dyut Ming Gam), the latest film by Johnnie will be in Competition at Venezia 68. It is the last movie to secure a spot in the competition slot which already has an incredibly strong lineup. The film stars Lau Ching Wan, Richie Jen, Denise Ho and Terence Yin, and seems to be inspired by the recent financial crisis that have rocked markets worldwide. Here’s the official synopsis:
Synopsis: Life Without Principle tells the story of three characters: an ordinary bank teller turned financial analyst is forced to sell high risk securities to her customers in order to meet her sales target; a small-time thug delves into the futures index hoping to earn easy money to post bail for a buddy in trouble with the law; a straight-arrow Police inspector, who has always enjoyed his middle income lifestyle, is suddenly desperate for money when his wife puts a down payment on a luxury flat she can’t afford and his dying father wants him to look after a young half-sister he never knew he had.
