Where A Good Man Goes (1999)

A few months before he released his internationally acclaimed film The Mission, director Johnnie To made a small film that, for me, stands as a better movie than many of his subsequent works. Working with executive director Patrick Yau Tat-Chi and assistant director Law Wing-Cheong, To keeps to a straight narrative form to tell his story.

Where A Good Man Goes is a remarkable ensemble piece of filmmaking that features a great cast performing a well written, character driven screenplay. Lau Ching-Wan gives one of his finest performances alongside a remarkable performance from Ruby Wong Cheuk-Ling. Veteran cinematographer Cheng Siu-Keung makes the whole film look fantastic.
