Fung Chih-chiang once again proves that no city is as perfect for genre cinema as Hong Kong. Fung built up a reputation contributing to screenplays for films such as Shaolin Soccer (Stephen Chow) and Sparrow (Johnnie To). After directing a modern Western, a showbiz satire and a musical, he's really picking up speed with this highly amusing police thriller-cum-Freudian drama, aided by a strong ensemble cast led by Cherry Ngan, Louis Cheung and Louis Koo.

A man who some months ago was involved in a violent raid on a jeweler's shop is found dead. Police detectives Yip and Lam disagree, but there is a suspicion the murder may be connected to a quarrel about the distribution of the loot. Is criminal Sean Wong responsible? The solution to the mystery could lie with the sole witness: an exceptionally clever talking parrot.
