The Hong Kong master offers a cinematic and dazzling transformation of Sylvia Chang’s hit play Design for Living in a spectacular musical film about intrigues in the corporate world. 

Panorama / Careers

Only Johnnie To can make a musical about the financial crisis and corporate competitiveness in China in such a way that even if it has no outstanding songs or choreographies, we can’t take our eyes away from the screen. The explosion of colors and a very pertinent 3D invite us to a party. The elegant and lucid camera flies over the action and reveals the essence of the system, with no walls hiding it. The relationships within the company, the crossed betrayals and passions lead us to think nothing is too indifferent in the financial major leagues, which are ruled by ambition and gossip rather than intelligence. The director of Election has followed, foreseen, and criticized the recent history of his country through genre cinema. Now he appears to be saying: when recession is inevitable, relax and enjoy.
