From acclaimed director Johnnie To (Election, Exiled) comes this story of a “sparrow,” street slang for a pickpocket, who falls in love with a woman who desires to use his special skills for her own purposes.
A personal project for Hong Kong genre king Johnnie To, Sparrow is suffused with a love of romance and high-octane fun. With an extraordinarily memorable score and feather-light tonal shifts, this story of Hong Kong pickpockets proves that the action master has a delightfully breezy flair.
