Directed by Johnnie To | 2008

With Simon Yam, Kelly Lin, Ka Tung Lam

“A sprightly comedy caper about a pickpocket gang that pays eccentric homage to French cinema.”
—The Guardian

In one of his most acclaimed forays into comedy, Hong Kong mob-film maestro Johnnie To dazzles with bluesy atmosphere, nouvelle vague-besotted allusiveness, and the most elegantly choreographed umbrella set piece this side of Jacques Demy. In gestation for three years (a remarkably long period for the prolific To), this stylish caper—named after Cantonese slang for “pickpocket”—follows a band of thieves and their entanglements with a gorgeous Mainland femme fatale, who quickly turns the tables on the men she encounters. Featuring charismatic performances by Simon Yam and Kelly Lin, Sparrow boasts some of the most lyrical shots of neon-lit Hong Kong in contemporary cinema.
