Infernal Affairs (12-Dec-2002)|
Original Title: Mou gaan dou
Directors: Andrew Lau; Alan Mak
Writers: Felix Chong; Alan Mak
An undercover cop and mole operating out of the same police department work against one another to uncover each other's identity.
Idealistic rookie cop Chan Wing Yan is working a tough assignment as a mole in a local organized crime ring; Lau Kin Ming, meanwhile, is a rookie mobster aiming to infiltrate Chan's department's ranks. Double lives rage on for years and years until Lau, now a police inspector, works against Chan to expose his identity as both groups begin to grow aware of the presences of their respective moles. A massive critical and commercial hit at home in Hong Kong and abroad, Infernal Affairs would serve as the basis for similarly-successful American thriller The Departed four years later.
