Hong Kong / China, 2007 (MIFF 2008, Neighbourhood Watch)

Director: Johnnie To, Tsui Hark, Ringo Lam


“The beginning, middle and end of Triangle are directed by three different directors… it is like tasting an exquisite dish with three different flavors.” - Pusan Film Festival

Combining the might of Hong Kong's most celebrated filmmakers - Johnnie To (Election, MIFF 05), Tsui Hark (Seven Swords, MIFF 06) and Ringo Lam - Triangle mixes comedy, drama and thriller in three distinct sections signposted by the directors' signature styles. This heist-gone-wrong story sees three down-on-their-luck cronies tipped off about an ancient treasure buried under a government building. They successfully bag the booty but quickly realise they're not the only ones with their sights set on this prize. “A fanboy high-five from three crazy directors who know their stuff.” -
