    The return to directing of one of the key directors of the Hong Kong New Wave who from ‘89 dedicated himself exclusively dedicated to editing and teaching. A story of family conflict set in Malaysia allows Tam to renew his experimental, bold approach to commercial cinema, combining the energy of popular Hong Kong cinema with an extraordinary ability to narrate the characters and their emotional complexity.

    And suddenly, there was darkness! A powercut in Tokyo brings everything to a standstill, and from being a temporary blackout, the situation becomes permanent. The Suzuki family don’t lose heart, though, despite the general hysteria. At first they try to live normally, then devise ingenious ways to survive and finally set off by bike towards their grandparents’ farm. Will they manage to find a peaceful new life and hobbies without the comforts of the modern world? And would you?

    A police task force accompanies Playboy, leader of the group of dangerous criminals known as the Butterfly gang, to jail. In exchange for a lenient sentence, Playboy promises to reveal the identity of the real boss: Madame. But Madame puts a bounty on his head, and all hell breaks loose. How will they get out of the prison alive? Pure exploitation with action, humour, crazy fight scenes away and lethal beauties where the soundtrack is the crack of breaking bones. Now Cambodia has its own The Raid!
