Review

A criminal thriller, produced by Jonny To and co-directed by Frank Hui, Jevons Au, and Vicky Wong. It is a story of three criminals from mainland around the time in 1997 when Hong Kong was returned to China. Their future is uncertain like that of the city. Three directors finished each episode. Characters of each episode are loosely linked in the film. When the three narratives meet together at the end, it completes a map of dark fate. Trivisa is Sanskrit for “Three Poisons” of greed,
hatred and bewilderment. According to Buddha’s teaching, the three are the cause of all pain. Three criminals represent each poison. The film follows the tradition and perspective of Hong Kong’s apocalyptic noir films, arousing nostalgia for the genre. (JANG Byungwon)
