Celluloid Dreams The Directors Label


Life has not been kind to drinking buddies Sam, Fai, and Mok as they struggle to make ends meet, until one stormy evening a mysterious old man appears before them in a bar with a ‘get rich quick’ scheme: an ancient treasure is buried under a high-security government building. All they have to do is slip in and retrieve it. What they find is an ancient coffin containing a ceremonial robe made of gold. According to Mok, who deals antiques, the robe is worth millions. The thought of getting rich puts the men’s friendship to the ultimate test as all three are plagued with uncontrollable thoughts of greed. The treasure, however, also attracts the attention of Ling, whose marriage to Sam is on the verge of collapse, and who plans to steal the robe and run away with her secret lover. Gangsters from the mainland are also hot on their heels. It seems that everybody wants to get their hands on the treasure. Whoever has the strength and outright determination to survive this struggle will become the owner. Between survival, wealth and friendship, Sam, Fai and Mok will ultimately have to make a choice…. The first ever film to be shot in the style of the game ‘exquisite corpse’ with the three undisputed masters of Hong Kong cinema.
