Hong Kong cinema has been accused of being in decline recently, but the tide has been turning and amazing films such as Infernal Affairs (Infernal Affairs is a trilogy and this is film one).
The plot involves two undercover moles (infiltrators), one a triad in the police force and the other an undercover cop who is deep in with the triads. Questioning the morality of their respective positions and finding the lines between their real and undercover lives blurred, the film follows their story and the effect that their decisions take on their respective "careers".
The acting in this movie is INCREDIBLE. Every single actor works in this film with no weak links. (My favourite performance was that of Anthony Wong Chau-Sang who plays the superintendant of the undercover triad.)
This film is soon to be re-made as an Hollywood release, but do watch this version as it will surely be the definitive version. This movie is intelligent and more involving than most Hollywood thrillers I have seen for a long long while.
